About Military Community



The Military Community of IFMA will be the leading organization helping to bring all military related components and branches into the Facility Management profession.


The Military Community of IFMA will help bridge the gap between all military related components and branches with facility management adjacent skills and the Facility Management profession who needs more people with those skills. 

Provide veterans transitioning from their military occupational specialties into FM opportunities.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Military Community is asking for volunteers from each component to help share materials and connect active-duty military and veterans with the new community – and the global IFMA network. We hope to start with a handful of components and eventually expand so that we have military ambassadors working in all areas of FM. We are looking for the following volunteers:

  • The Advocate: One person from each component will work with leadership to facilitate the recruitment and retention of military veterans. This person should have experience working with representatives from a chapter, component or IFMA HQ. One volunteer per component.
  • The Wingman: A members with prior military service will be connected with each new military or veteran member. This person will assist with orientation of the new member. This person should have prior military service and at least 3 years as an IFMA member. One volunteer for each new member.
  • The Liaison: This person will be a link between their component and the military community. The liaison should be able to collaborate and be knowledgeable about IFMA and their component. One volunteer per component.

If you’d like to volunteer, please take a moment to fill out this form.
