Board Members at Large
Geoff Boss, FMP, CDP
I joined IFMA in order to share and learn best practices from FM peers and network with those peers. Although relatively new to the Northern Ohio Chapter, I’ve already formed friendships and networking relationships and plan to expand on those in the future. I’m excited about the opportunity to serve and be involved in such a great organization.
I am excited to be a member of the IFMA organization. IFMA provides me the ability to build relationships with members of the organization and to further my professional development.
Serving on the Northern Ohio IFMA Board keeps me informed of what is most important to FM’s as it relates to the Building Envelope. It is a pleasure collaborating with other dedicated professionals to develop educational and fun activities for the benefit of the organization.
Sharon Hatcher, MA, CFM, FMP
IFMA is a pathway to networking globally. It provides access to a plethora of FM expertise, and it is a platform to brainstorm with other subject matter experts to reflect, project, and find solutions to the ever-changing industry of facilities management.
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.
