Want to Earn Some IFMA Bucks?

The Chicago Chapter of IFMA has an incentive program designed to encourage participation and increase membership. The program enables you to accumulate IFMA BUCKS which are redeemable at the Annual Meeting.

The meeting features a BUCK-et auction where you use the BUCKS you have earned to be placed in a drawing on a variety of great donated prizes, such as hotel and dinner packages, furniture, sports tickets, gift cards and other fantastic gifts.

The program was created to encourage and reward you for taking part in all IFMA functions and to motivate you to bring new members to the Chicago Chapter.
