Join us at the Embassy Suites Uptown Charlotte March 9-10, 2023!
Come and join your fellow FM's and Service Providers (Associates) for a day and night of education and celebration at our 4th Annual IFMA Carolina's Summit and Gala. This event kicks off with an optional Facility Tour, the Educational Summit, followed by a cocktail reception and awards dinner where we will celebrate the leaders in the FM industry in the Carolinas. Awards will be presented in the following four categories: FM of the Year, Associate of the Year, Young Member of the Year and Innovation of the Year. Click here to nominate your colleagues until February 17! 
To honor the FM's that have led our industry through this bustling economy, any Facility Manager can attend this event. The registration fee is $40, regardless of whether they are an active chapter member or not. Service Providers who are active members of one of the 5 Carolina chapters (Greenville, SC, Upstate SC, Charlotte, Triad, Triangle) may purchase tickets for $200. This provides full access to the educational sessions, cocktail reception and awards dinner with numerous opportunities for networking. Service Providers may also purchase tickets for additional members of their company who are not active members. Service Providers who do not have an active Chapter membership may not attend.
