The International Facility Management Association (IFMA), is a not-for-profit, incorporated association dedicated to maintaining excellence in the management of facilities. You can learn more about IFMA by going to the International website at ifma.org.

Facility management is the practice of coordinating the physical workplace with the people and work of the organization. It integrates the principles of business administration, architecture and the behavioral and engineering sciences to provide a work environment that can also  support the needs and goals of a business organization. 

Although the facility management profession has been in existence since the evolution of the office, only in recent years has it received worldwide recognition. Business entities have come to realize that maintaining a well-managed and highly efficient and healthy facility is critical to success. New technologies, environmental consciousness and health concerns also have had a major impact on the importance of and need for facility professionals in organizations.
