Partners in Excellence Agreement

Three of the founding partners of Global FM, FMA, the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) and the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), have established a ‘Partners in Excellence Agreement’.

The agreement promotes international collaboration between the three bodies in the interests of their members and the global FM community. It allows for the sharing of knowledge and the promotion of worldwide standards and best practice guidelines for facilities management as a professional business sector. This includes enhanced membership experience, educational opportunities, advancement of the profession and promotion of sound administrative, operational and financial best practice for the more than 28,000 members represented by the three Associations.

The Agreement also includes joint meetings, membership benefits, advocacy, research and certification.
