Thank you for deciding to join the award winning Greater Orlando Chapter of IFMA! Your membership will give you many opportunities to meet with others in the facilities management profession, participate in great educational luncheons and roundtables, have access to educational scholarship opportunities and do your part to make this chapter even stronger.
If you haven't already done so, please take some time to navigate through our website, learn more about our chapter, board and upcoming events and set up your Profile Page for the directory. (Click on the "Members Only" area in the center of the front page of the website.) This is especially important for our Associate members so the FM's can find you when searching for a particular service or product. Please make sure you list a category or categories for your business so you don't miss out on opportunities. You can link up to five categories.
PLEASE NOTE: There can be a 7-10 day delay between the time you join and when you will be able to log on to the Orlando Chapter of IFMA's website. This is because all new member information goes directly to the IFMA International Headquarters first in Houston, Texas. Once your application is processed and approved, they will notify us we have new members and then our Chapter Administrator will upload your member information onto our website directory. We will do our best to get you in the system as soon as possible and you should receive an a welcome email message that will provide you with your Chapter log-in information.

We encourage you to change your password the first time you log on to make it more secure.

This login gives you "Members Only" rights to view our Member Directory, get discounts on upcoming programs, socials and tours and other member's only benefits.
