Introduction

IFMA’s Awards of Excellence recognize the outstanding achievements of individual members, chapters, councils and partners. Each year, awards are presented at World Workplace, honoring those who have made exceptional contributions to the advancement of the FM profession and the association.

Judging Panel

Judges include a body of executive committee members, IFMA champions, chapter and council leaders, IFMA Fellows and IFMA staff. The 2014 Awards of Excellence Judging Panel will receive emails containing one of each submission in the various categories. Judging panels are composed of qualified volunteers who have demonstrated expertise and practice in the award areas they are to judge. The form used by the judges to evaluate each award is available online.

Each of the questions (achievements) and judges’ overall evaluation of your entry are assigned point values and summed to determine the final score.  Some award categories also call for the nominator to provide exhibits that are also worth points. Winners are determined by the highest total scoring; however, judges reserve the right to withhold an award should they determine no submission qualifies as “excellent” or does not reach the minimum of 85 cumulative points out of a total possible of 100.
