Knowledge strategy is a game-changing initiative to provide easier, more efficient access to content and knowledge sharing in an effort to build a stronger network of FM knowledge and help facility managers in their careers. Here are a number of knowledge resources available to IFMA members.

Knowledge Library

The Knowledge Library provides FMs and IFMA members with seamless access to hundreds of valuable resources to help facility managers enhance their FM knowledge and further their careers. From this easy-to-use online platform, you’ll be able to read, watch and listen to the latest articles, research, videos, podcasts and more all produced and reviewed by renowned thought-leaders of FM.


Call for Content

Become a published writer and get recognized as a thought-leader in FM? IFMA hosts an open call for content year-round for authors from all backgrounds, industries and experience levels to submit content that is educational and informative to facility managers.

Submissions due: October 1, 2017.

Become a Content Expert

Being a Content Expert is a very rewarding experience. Content Experts help review the latest content being considered for publication in the Knowledge Library to ensure that it is relevant and useful to facility managers and the industry of facility management as a whole. Gain exclusive, first-look access to the latest FM content being written and produced and give back to your FM community by helping IFMA publish the highest quality content possible.


FM Glossary

This glossary is a resource for the facility management community to look up meanings and definitions of words, add new words and comment on existing definitions. This resource helps FMs to standardize a common language in the field of facility management.


Chapter and Leader Tools

Access the leader report portal and valuable membership marketing tool kit to more effectively manage your chapter, councils or communities. You can also connect with fellow FMs through IFMA's new Engage discussion platform.

Research, Benchmarks and Surveys

Whether the focus is on industry averages, benchmarking statistics or the latest workplace trends, IFMA has a wealth of research resources to aid facility managers in making informed, data-driven decisions and operating by best practices.
