Welcome to IFMA
Mini-World Workplace 2014

by Jamie Moore,
Special to IFMAPhilly.org


The Greater Philadelphia Chapter of IFMA hosted the annual Mini-World Workplace. Although this event is described as ‘mini’ to differentiate it from its international cousin, the Philadelphia event is by no means small.  Following the success of last year’s local event, a few changes to the past winning structure and activity formulas proved to be gold medal decisions.  

First, a return to Harrah’s Casino and Racetrack in Philadelphia after several years at other venues lured members, affiliates and sponsors back to this established gaming and conference center. Second, the addition of two educational sessions was a huge draw and brought us closer to the International World Workplace Conference & Expo format.


New President's Report - August, 2014


New President's Message


Wow! It's well into August and the summer is flying by, but rest assured that although this is the time for family vacations and trips to the shore, the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of IFMA has been very gearing up for an exciting fall line-up of events hosted by the Program and Education Committees including a Disaster Recovery program and a Best Practices in October.


It is so refreshing to be a part of an industry that is really moving and shaking.
