Congratulations to our own Chris Mancus: IFMA Chapter Member of the Year

Last evening in Detroit, IFMA South East Chapter President Margaret St. Andre and past President Jason Wells recognized sponsors and members at the annual IFMA holiday party, held at the Coach Insignia restaurant, attended by approximately 100 members and guests -- a great turnout in a city hampered by economic challenges for many years.

This year, the South East Chapter of IFMA recognized Chris Mancus as “Chapter Member of the Year,” for his commitment and dedication to helping grow the chapter and spread the word about IFMA throughout his service area. Chris served as Membership Chairman of the Chapter, volunteers for the golf outing, and attends every board meeting as well as chapter functions, including World Workplace.

In presenting the award last night, Jason Wells said that Chris was a model chapter member as he gives selflessly to the organization and helps to make it better through his “showing up” whenever the chapter needs him.

The board members assured me that the decision to elect Chris as the Chapter Member of the Year was easy and unanimous. Chris has been a member of the SE Chapter since opening the RD Weis Companies Detroit office four years ago, and has met my requirements for IFMA membership by being more than just an attendee at meetings, but actually working on committee’s and volunteering for a board assignment.

Another wonderful and amazing feature of this event was the spirit and optimism the business people in Detroit have about their city and its future. RD Weis Companies is clearly on the map with Facility Mangers in Detroit as a result of the efforts of Chris, Dana, and Kerry -- these guys are on a roll.

Congratulations, Chris! Well deserved.
