Opportunities to Build a Qualified Employee Pipeline


Interested in learning more about building a qualified team of FM professionals to help build your business? Come join us for our IFMA New Orleans January Luncheon! Barry Brantley, Professor and Hospitality Management Department Chair at Delgado Community College, will be speaking about partnerships with secondary, postsecondary and workforce training entities. His talk will also touch on FM industry credentials, federal funding for training support and career education. If you’re in FM and have struggled finding qualified candidates for open positions please attend this event and take advantage of the amazing resources of Barry Brantley.

Associates, I’m sure you know an overwhelmed FM (or two) that could benefit from this knowledge so please encourage them to come and help spread the word! IFMA New Orleans is looking to build on our relationship with Delgado Community College and is beyond excited to present Barry Brantley as our first speaker of 2019!

We hope to see you there!



What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There’s a paid parking lot across the street from the restaurant. Unfortunately, there is no parking validation.


What is the benefit to registering early? Where can I pre-register?

Registering early will save you time and money – There will now be a higher cost for paying upon location. Preregistration helps us to accurately assess what is needed to accommodate our meetings – food, seating, space, working materials etc. Please make sure to register as early as you can!
