IFMA – World FM Day is all about you. It’s a time of honor and acknowledgment for all facility management professionals.
It’s an opportunity to bring the unsung heroes of developed retail and restaurants into the spotlight and offer well-deserved gratitude to those who keep our facilities solid, safe and efficient.
World FM Day is May 15, but celebrations are encouraged the whole month, especially May 13-17.
You don’t have to sign up to take an interest — just focus on honoring these individuals by either saying thanks to an FM, visiting or facilitating an FM-related event or using the free assets from IFMA.
Make sure to add your plans to Global FM’s worldwide event map.
