The Bulgarian Facility Management Association to Partner with IFMA
An IFMA Alliance partnership provides members of global facility-related organizations like BGFMA and former IFMA component groups with select IFMA member benefits directed at individual skill development

The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) is pleased to introduce its newest IFMA Alliance partnership with the Bulgarian Facility Management Association (BGFMA).
An IFMA Alliance partnership provides members of global facility-related organizations like BGFMA and former IFMA component groups with select IFMA member benefits directed at individual skill development. Members of IFMA Alliance organizations become "custom" members of IFMA with the ability to determine what information they wish to share with, and receive from, IFMA based on their unique individual needs. BGFMA is the second partner in the heralded IFMA Alliance, following the induction of Facility Management Nederland (FMN) last year.
“This new alliance partnership with the Bulgarian Facility Management Association is great news for everyone in IFMA,” said IFMA President and CEO Tony Keane, CAE. “Not only does it improve the resources and knowledge pool we offer to existing members by bringing new professionals and ideas into the fold, but BGFMA can offer its members access to industry-leading educational and credential programs offered by IFMA. The more we connect with facility managers around the world and the more we work as a team, the stronger our united voice to elevate the global recognition of the FM profession becomes. It’s been a tremendous honor to work with the entire BGFMA team including Chairman Goran Milanov and Vice Chairman Tosho Kirov, and I look forward to a bright future moving our organizations and industry forward together.”
“We are very happy to sign such a partnership with IFMA. For sure this cooperation will benefit our members and will give both associations ability to extend their FM horizons,” said Goran Milanov, chairman of BGFMA. “We are working hard to disseminate the FM ideas and standards and this partnership will boost our efforts. Being able to work closely with IFMA will speed up our journey to FM maturity and will reinforce our position of Balkan center of FM excellence.”
