In 1997 a small group of Swiss Facility Managers decided to create a national Association with an International Touch. So the Switzerland Chapter of IFMA was born. During the years the Association got bigger and today you find more than 200 professionel members. The goal of the Chapter is the thematic leadership in FM in Switzerland and today they have a strong position in the Swiss market. With our Guidelines and products we can provide a lot of know-how which is well implemented and known in the German parts of Europe. With all those Achievements a Celebration is well-deserved.
So after the general assemblee on Agust 31st we started a boat trip on the lake of Zurich. With a nice program and good food about 70 members enjoyed a nice time. We also could welcome Lara Paemen from IFMA Europe, Goran Milanov from EuroFM and Markus Lehmann from GEFMA on the boat. A Highlight was a special talk with all presidents from the last 20 years who gave interesting insights of IFMA Switzerland. Although it was raining the whole time everybody enjoyed the trip a lot and are looking forward for the next 20 years!
