IFMA Announces New Religious Facilities Community of Practice

The International Facility Management Association announces the formation of the Religious Facilities Community, a new community of practice devoted to those who work as full-time, part-time or volunteer facility managers in their houses of worship. IFMA’s communities of practice are organized special interest groups that unite members of specific industries not represented by the association’s councils.

The new community will provide a network for religious-facility professionals of all faiths to connect with one another and share resources through webinars, roundtables, benchmarking studies and other continuing education opportunities.

“Religious facility professionals around the world will find a wealth of knowledge and opportunities for support at their fingertips in the

Religious Facilities Community,” says Timothy O’Malley, CFM, CFMJ, president of The O’Malley Group and clerk of the works for the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona. “We have unique requirements ranging from facility maintenance and presentation to funerals that must be scheduled on short notice, and this community will help address our special needs.”

To learn more about joining the Religious Facilities Community, contact Kari Stein, IFMA council development specialist, at 713-623-4362 or kari.stein@ifma.org
