Description:
The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) is the largest recognized professional association for facility managers in the world. IFMA headquarters is located in Houston, Texas.

IFMA was founded in October 1980 by a group led by David Armstrong at the Facility Management Institute (FMI) in Ann Arbor, Michigan as the National Facility Management Association (NFMA), a not-for-profit incorporated association. The name was changed to IFMA in 1982. As of 2010, IFMA has more than 19,000 members in 125 chapters and 16 councils in 78 countries worldwide.

IFMA certifies facility managers, conducts research, provides educational programs, recognizes facility management degree and certificate programs and produces World Workplace, the largest facility management-related conference and exposition. The official publication of IFMA, (FMJ), is published bimonthly.
