  • Tools to Help Maintain Your IFMA Membership During the COVID-19 Pandemic

    The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a number of unique challenges for FMs and IFMA has answered the need for resources, information and even ways to maintain your IFMA membership when the future seems a little uncertain. IFMA membership is more important now than ever as we navigate new and unusual territory in our FM careers.

    Members that are unable to renew their membership due to COVID-19 challenges can take advantage of the following options.

    • Quarterly or bi-annual membership dues payments
    • Extension of grace period from 60 to 90 days
    • Members out of work are eligible to receive the retired base membership rate of $100.

    If your IFMA membership is at risk, reach out today. Contact IFMA at +1-713-623-4362 or

  • Engage Rules and Etiquette

    Thank you for being part of our forum. To ensure the best possible experience for all members, we would like to remind everyone of the following guidelines for participation.

    By joining and using this site, you agree that you have read and will follow these rules and guidelines. You also agree to reserve discussions and shared files and content to that best suited to the medium. This is a great medium with which to solicit the advice of your peers, benefit from their experience, and participate in an ongoing conversation.

    Please take a moment to acquaint yourself with these important guidelines. If you have questions, contact the member services department. In order to preserve an environment that encourages both civil and fruitful dialogue, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate use of this site for anyone who violate these rules.

    The Rules

      • Respect others. Focus on the content of posts and not on the people making them. Please extend the benefit of the doubt to newer guests and members; there’s no such thing as a stupid question.

      • Don't post commercial messages on Engage. Contact people directly with product and service information if you believe it would help them, contact your local IFMA chapter or visit to learn more about advertising and partnership opportunities.

      • Engage messages should not contain promotional material, special offers, job offers, product announcements, or solicitation for services. IFMA reserves the right to remove such messages and potentially ban sources of those solicitations to maintain the integrity of the Engage Platform as an FM community resource.

      • Respect the purpose of Engage. Use the site to share successes, challenges, constructive feedback, questions, and goals instead of products or services that you provide. If you’ve found a product or service helpful, please share your experience with the group in a respectful way.
