IFMA CHESAPEAKE CHAPTER RECOGNIZED AS SMALL CHAPTER OF THE YEAR AT

WORLD WORKPLACE 2019!

 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. 

We extend a big thank you to Past President Ed Fraczkowski who initiated the application process. Board members contributed content as well to round out the winning application. We look forward to another amazing year!

On March 23, 2019 René Carter, director of communications, and Ron Sauter, VP, learning and professional development, attended the 26th Annual Happy Helpers for the Homeless Awards Ceremony. They accepted a “Heroes for the Homeless” medal from Executive Director Bobbi Coffman on behalf of the chapter for toys and money that were donated by chapter members at the holiday gathering last December. Happy Helpers for the Homeless is an all-volunteer organization, so 100% of donations go to the homeless they serve in Baltimore and Glen Burnie.
