IFMA’s Award of Excellence honors companies, individuals, chapters, and councils who have raised the bar in their contributions to the advancement of the facility management profession and to IFMA around the globe. The Associate Member award is given to an individual who has voluntarily contributed to IFMA through sponsoring programs, presenting innovative sessions on FM-related topics, sponsoring educational research or scholarships, and/or providing technical assistance to other members.

With over 20 years of experience in the industry and countless hours volunteered, Chip is the ideal recipient.”
