Extraordinary Support

The CFC has experienced sustained growth for several years because of its commitment to providing highly valuable education, industry research, timely information, and programs of exceptional quality. Pertinent topics have covered real estate consolidation, amenities standards, alternative officing solutions, sustainability, major move strategies, office chair selection, food service standards, templates for RFPs, and policies and training for defibrillator use, to name just a few.

Fellow Council Members,

Two years ago when Alice Hogueisson became your president she had a perfect introduction.

“I've joined a long line of very talented, smart, and successful people who have held this role before me─because we know the value this council provides! Active volunteers and a participating membership make the CFC a great place to connect with fellow FMs . . . ”

I could not have said it any better, so thanks, Alice, for helping me to get started on the right foot and for your unsurpassed leadership.

It truly is an honor to serve as president of the Corporate Facilities Council, the largest in IFMA, which provides us the platform by which we can provide outstanding programs to our members (like this great website!). The board of directors is populated by notable FMs who have a passion for our profession, which makes the time we give to the organization both rewarding and pleasurable. I would ask you if you are also passionate about facilities and like to have fun, why not consider volunteering for one of our leadership positions? Tell us what you enjoy doing and we can find a spot for you.

Even if you don’t wish to volunteer, simply belonging and participating is a superb way to network, increase your knowledge base, and partake of a bank of resources you can count on. One quick story to that end: I had a project for which I had no resources and needed it completed in 6 weeks, an undertaking that would normally take 6 months. I contacted my local IFMA chapter and they, along with my council friends, were able to provide me a list of trusted vendors. From that list I was able to contract with several of them straight away and complete the project within the timeline. It just goes to show you—with the right contacts anything is possible.   

Your membership has its advantages! I encourage all of you to avail yourselves of all IFMA and your Corporate Facilities Council has to offer.

Best Wishes,

Steven R. Pons, CFM
