I want to recognize our 2014 Sponsors for the support they provide to our chapter. Please take a moment to thank these sponsors the next time you see them at our luncheons or other Austin IFMA events.
Our 2014 Medalist Sponsors are:

Please keep these sponsors in mind when identifying vendors to receive an RFP for services or materials that you may be pursuing.
From all the feedback received and the preliminary financials, the 2014 Golf Outing was a tremendous success. I want to thank Star Ranch Golf Course, our sponsors, golfers, volunteers, recruiters and the members of the Golf Committee for their participation and contributions. All of the contributions made were the chief contributing factor to this event=92s success. A special shout out for Crystal Green who worked tirelessly to ensure that this event came together as flawlessly as possible.
In September, many of your Austin IFMA chapter members converged at World Workplace in New Orleans and NOLA will never be the same. A great time seemed to be had by all from start to finish. Not only did we have the opportunity for some great educational sessions and networking opportunities but, there was a shin-dig or two that was attended. With ABM and Corporate Floor parties being held at the House of Blues, the IFMA Welcome Celebration being held at the Mardi Gras warehouse and the famous Cort Party being held at the Marriott near the convention center, it was truly a grand time.
Our upcoming 2014 events will be the November 13th luncheon with a community service opportunity at Sammy=92s House following this luncheon. In December, the Holiday Gala luncheon will take place. The details are still being finalized with more information coming soon.
Please contact any Board members should you have any questions or to find out how to become more involved in your chapter. I look forward to seeing each of you at one or more of our upcoming events.
