After retiring from the USAF, I joined IFMA to meet and network with FM leaders in the Cleveland area.  Attending my first IFMA meeting, sitting with Board leadership and meeting fellow dedicated professionals substantiates our growth opportunities while enhancing Facility Sustainment.  The Northern Ohio Chapter presents a place for networking with fellow FMs, enhances professional development and contributes to our IFMA Platform.
