Advocacy Day 2023


Given the extraordinary volatility and uncertainty in Washington and around the globe, the Government Affairs Committee Leadership has made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Advocacy Day.

Despite this scheduling set back, IFMA’s Advocacy Program continues to work to drive policy and conversations around workforce training, energy and sustainability, disposition of excess property and the challenges the building sector faces in a post-covid environment.

In addition to ongoing monthly Government Affairs Committee meetings, IFMA is planning a virtual policy forum in early 2024 and will look forward to an in-person Advocacy Day in September 2024.
