Our second annual "IFMA After Hours" was held on June 22nd, 2006. For the second straight year, we invited IFMA Tulsa Associate members to participate in a trade show atmosphere to give the Professional members an idea of the services and products they provide.
The event was held at the Williams Center Forum space in the BOK Tower. There was no cost to the attendees or the Associate members who participated. Sponsors or the chapter covered the cost of food, drinks, tables, tablecloths and skirts, etc.
Associate member firms that set up a display included:
- Scott Rice
- First Maintenance Company of Tulsa
- Tropical Plant Design
- Herman Miller Workplace Resource
- Seifried Sales Associates
- Force Protection Services
- National Wallcovering
- DYNA Service of Oklahoma
- Youth Services of Tulsa
Two all expense paid trips to World Workplace in San Diego were given away at the event. To qualify, chapter members had to attend 5 of the last 8 meetings to be eligible for one of the trips or they had to have sponsored a new member in the past year to be eligible for the second trip. Congratulations to Bill Farr for winning the trip for meeting attendance and Carl Vincent for winning the new member sponsorship trip.
Thanks to all the Professional members who attended and gave our Associates the opportunity to educate them about all the products and services their company provide. We would also like to extend a big thank you to all of our Associate members that provided some awesome door prizes.
