19th Annual Awards of Excellence
This year’s event will be coupled with the 19th Annual Awards of Excellence where we will celebrate and honor the best practices in facilities management.

The awards event will be kicked off with this year’s keynote speaker at a seated luncheon. We will then convey all the awards for Excellence in Facilities Transformation, Excellence in FM, Excellence in Building Synergies, the President’s Award, the Lori Stewart Coletti Award and more.

1 Submission, 3 Ways to Share

We’re looking for familiar faces with innovative experience and best practices to share with our membership. They can help expose our Boston area Facility Management community to real life technology, processes, ideas and accomplishments that will help them excel within their roles. These can be shared three different ways this year.

Submit it for one, two or all:

• For an Award of Excellence

• For a Track Specific Intensive 1 Hour Session: Tracks include Technology, Climate/Sustainability, and Leadership and Human Factors

• For a 20 Minute TECHTalk

All with one form! The process is simple!

All awards and FM specific speaker submittals must include a facility manager that was integral to the delivery of the project or initiative. They can then be paired with a preferred vendor or partner that worked in conjunction with them.

Your submission should align with at least one of IFMA’s 11 core competencies: Communication, emergency preparedness and business continuity, environmental stewardship and sustainability, finance and business, human factors, leadership and strategy, operations and management, quality, real estate and property management, and/or technology.

All proposals can be submitted online, and must be received by 5:00 PM on Friday, January 14th.
