From the President

Eastern Iowa IFMA members and potential new members:

Our Board is looking forward to an exciting 2017 and has started to prepare for the year ahead.

We are calling for “all hands on deck” as we roll out an exciting initiative: The Eastern Iowa IFMA Internship and Scholarship Program.

Our program will begin with the coordination of job shadowing opportunities for high school students, and internships for college students interested in a FM career.  We would like to bring awareness to FM careers through mentoring and hands on experience to individuals who are interested in the possibilities that exist in our profession.  In doing so, we feel not only will the students have a chance to grow and succeed, but FM will gain a much needed pipeline of young talent.

Finally, we would like to finish the year by offering one student a scholarship.  With all of the above in mind, we would like to gauge interest from current EI –IFMA members and potential members on level of interest and involvement.

This is what we need from you:
