We are pleased to announce that IFMA Chesapeake was recognized as the Small Chapter of the Year at the 2019 World Workplace Conference in Phoenix. Seventeen chapter members attended the conference this year and were honored to accept the award on behalf of the chapter.
The award recognizes the chapter of 200 members or less that excels in membership marketing, professional development and communications. Additionally, the chapter must meet or exceed membership expectations, be fiscally responsible, communicate to their membership a clear strategic plan and implement its action items. They must also maintain quality growth, be innovative in raising funds, and have a high percentage of members attending and participating in meetings.
