Find your next step with FREE Student Membership

IFMA has the resources and connections to help students succeed – and accelerate their future careers. 

Allecia McDonald joined IFMA as a student in 2016 and now serves as Vice President of IFMA’s Minneapolis/St. Paul Chapter. “When I started my bachelor’s degree program at the University of Minnesota, I joined IFMA as a student member. The best way to immerse myself in the FM community and grow my career was to make connections, and I never would’ve guessed what IFMA could do for me,” says Allecia. “You can never stop learning and growing – and that’s what I get from IFMA.”
