Getting Involved

0910_IFMAAdvocacyDays15_084It's critically important that elected officials at the federal, state and local levels have the most relevant and up-to-date information when shaping the policies that impact each of us. Together, we can help them understand the importance of the built environment and the significant impact that FM professionals have on issues like energy efficiency and sustainability.

Engaging in the legislative process can be intimidating, but it doesn't have to be. Not only do your elected officials work for you, they need your information to do their jobs effectively. IFMA Advocacy Day makes it easy and fun to get involved, to help ensure that policy decisions move the FM industry in the right direction.
