President's Message

A top 5 list of things to know for the New Year:

  1. Would you like to be the next Waterboy (or girl)? Learn more about water at the AO Smith tour on January 15th.
  2. If your New Year's Resolution is additional training, keep an eye out for additional courses coming up from IFMA.
  3. Check out the lunch & learn at HGA Architects on February 21st.
  4. It's never to early to start spring cleaning, think about getting organized for the New Year.
  5. Barley & Hops Fan- be sure to attend the February 28th recruitment event at Milwaukee Brewing.

At IFMA, we are continually looking for ways to enhance the value you receive from your membership and involvement in our organization.

Do you have ideas, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or another board/committee member.

Sincerely,

Matt

In Case You Missed It

2018 SEW IFMA Holiday Party

A hearty Thank You to one and all who helped to make this year’s IFMA Holiday Social and Auction a great success!!  All of our auction donors were very generous this year in their gifts and we had some amazing auction items brought to the table (literally).  Bidding was boisterous and special thanks to all our auction winners for their generosity, which raised $3140.00 to benefit the Penfield’s Children Center in purchasing an item from their Wish List for the use of their children.  This could be either the Rifton Small Supine Stander or Tumble form chairs.  Both provide support for the children while working with their physical therapists.

Many hours went into organizing this annual event from both the Service Committee and the Special Events Committee.  Their time and commitment to SEW IFMA is greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,                                                                   

Your SEW IFMA Service Committee

Get involved -- join a committee!

Program Committee members help plan educational programs, building/construction site tours, and a number of social events throughout the year.  Members meet bi-monthly, currently at Moe’s Irish Tavern on Highway 100 and Bluemound.  We brainstorm and coordinate new events/tours.  Typically each member is assigned to coordinate an event.  Currently along with our monthly programs, planning is in the works for our annual Member Appreciation Event in October at Veloce Go Cart Racetrack and Point Burger Bar.  The Programs Committee is a great way to get involved and meet our members along with the opportunity to have a say in our Chapters future events.  

Please contact Brett Heikkila, Program Chair if interested in joining the Programs Committee: bheikkila@buildingservice.com

The SEW IFMA Education Committee is charged with providing educational opportunities to all the members of SEW IFMA through educational programs, student scholarships and member professional development. It will work to ensure that the member educational and certification needs are met.
