Founded in 1990 by Youness Baftechi, the Delaware Chapter of IFMA provides facility managers the opportunity to further their professional and personal development through education and networking in a welcoming environment.
The chapter has approximately 100 members, including four elected executive board positions and several appointed chairpersons. Chapter meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month, September through June, and offer a variety of programs and meeting formats. We also hold two “Lunch & Learn” meetings planned to address topics of particular interest.
We participate in the local community by supporting various charitable endeavors. Each year the chapter participates in a golf outing fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County, formerly sponsored entirely by the chapter and now expanded to include other organizations. We have been proud to make donations each year, at times reaching $25,000. In addition to our work with Habitat, we support the profession of facility management by offering academic scholarships for individuals who are pursuing a degree in the field. We also give to the IFMA Foundation.
We welcome you to attend one of our meetings to learn more about our chapter and to explore the many resources and benefits that come with membership in the Delaware Chapter of IFMA.
Dr. Dean will be presenting his latest research in FM to the chapter!
