Facility Managers Memberships

When you Choose to become a member of IFMA, don't forget to Choose IFMA-East TN/Knoxville Chapter. The basic membership is for the international membership.  You can choose to add our local chapter, which is highly recommended as this provides access to local membership information, educational sessions and monthly meetings at no charge.  It will advance your credibility at your current employer as well as among your local peers. Don't miss the opportunity to join and become involved with your local chapter when joining IFMA. You can also choose to join councils that include national and international membership.  These are focused councils for areas such as Airports, Public Sector, Research, etc.  There are different levels of membership dependent upon age and level, so please go to the IFMA National link provided below to review these options and pricing: IFMA Headquarter's membership application.

Vendor/Sponsor Memberships

Local sponsor membership is directly with the East TN IFMA chapter and allows us to provide additional benefits to our local vendors/sponsors that they do not receive through a standard IFMA national membership.  With multiple packages available you are able to choose the package that best fits your company.  All sponsor packages include one ticket to each of the monthly lunch meetings for your company, not a specific person, allowing flexibility in who attends.  The full sponsor benefits and available sponsorship packages can be seen here.  If you wish to become a local sponsor member click here.
