2001 World Workplace: Kansas City

It was an exciting Tuesday night at World Workplace 2001 in Kansas City. On September 25th at the Kansas City Convention Center, IFMA International hosted its annual Awards of Excellence Banquet.

Attending the gala on behalf of the Tulsa chapter was Robert Ashe, Jana Russell, Danny Simone, Roger Doty, Ted Webb, Brian Bennett, Nancy Morgan, Tony Lenox and IFMA Tulsa webmaster Chris Montgomery.

Each year IFMA gives out awards honoring the best of the best in a number of categories including Chapter of the Year, Newsletter of the Year and Web Site of the Year. In the spring of 2001, IFMA Tulsa submitted an application to IFMA International to be considered for the web site award. The questionnaire was very thorough and addressed many areas of importance that they felt were crucial to the success of an IFMA web site.

In July of 2001, IFMA Tulsa was notified that they were a finalist for the web site award. It all came to fruition that night in Kansas City when the Tulsa chapter received the 2001 Excellence in Web Communication Award. This first ever recognition for the Tulsa chapter was enthusiastically received by the Tulsa contingency. Our thanks go to Chris Montgomery with Benetela in Sandusky, OH for all his hard work on the web site. He has created a look and feel to our web site that we can all be proud of.

So, what's next for our chapter? How about Chapter of the Year? World Workplace 2002 is being held in Toronto. Start making your plans to go now and we'll see you there!
