The Greater Phoenix STUDENT Chapter of IFMA Wins Student Chapter of the Year

IFMA Student Chapter of the year – the main reasons why Arizona State University won the Award:

  • Created and taught in 10 College and High School Programs
  • Hosted 3 IFMA Leadership Conference with 190 participants
  • Supported 6 PhD and 4 MS students to receive their degree
  • Won ASU Changemaker competition
  • Taught 40 YSEALI Fellows from South East Asia about FM in a 2-hour session

A push to get high school and college students access to the Greater Phoenix Chapter of IFMA members and the profession. This will be done  in two ways:

  1. The student chapter is putting on 8 workshops this fall. It has already coordinated with 8 FMs in the valley and booked locations for the workshops at their sites. This is valuable because it gives the students and other professionals, access to the FM member’s site to view as well as learn more about the profession and any opportunities they have. The student chapter has partnered with the Leadership Society of Arizona to provide the professional leadership education and training.
  2. The IFMA student chapter is going to use its student body to run projects with the FM members in the valley. This will give the students easier access to FMs and work experience in the FM area.
