In 2016, the International Facility Management Association and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors initiated an unprecedented collaboration to strengthen industry support and representation for the 25 million FM practitioners around the world. The IFMA-RICS collaboration bridges the gap between FM and other professions that impact the built environment, increasing the network, resources and opportunities available to FMs. It’s about people coming together to define and redefine the exciting and evolving profession of facility management.
