The FM Story is Ours to Share

The FM story is being told around the globe; and the more it’s told, the more it becomes a story worth listening to.

IFMA’s World Workplace is at the center of this epic tale — leading our progress through advanced education; fostering our growth through dedicated support; and bringing FMs the world over together to share our narratives as part of the universal story of FM.
