We strongly believe that the IFMA professional association is the "go to" support structure for Facility Managers. The Chesapeake Chapter is here to encourage you and your mission.
Ensuring the health, safety and well-being of our members is especially critical at this time. To address the growing concerns of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have rescheduled meetings and postponed events.
In place of the face to face engagement, we would like to provide the following sampling of resources to assist you and your team in obtaining the latest information to assist with maintaining continued facility operations.
