Business Partner / Business Partner Associate Membership 2017 - 2018


Business Partner Memberships may be offered to individuals, organisations, manufacturers, or suppliers of goods and services operating for profit and ascribing to the policies of the Association and wishing to support the activities of TEFMA subject to approval by the Board. Membership of this category shall not be construed as endorsement, actual or implied, by TEFMA.

The value of a Business Partner membership

The value of membership is demonstrated by the growth in membership numbers (90 institutional members; over 1000 associate members and a growing number of Business Partner members) and increased use of the services provided by TEFMA. The wide range of relevant and contemporary publications, the educational activities and in particular the access to people and information represent an invaluable opportunity for private service providers. Activities are totally focused on the needs of the facilities management profession.

The resources offered by TEFMA tap the combined expertise of the tertiary education sector's many facilities professionals. Organisations servicing facilities professionals cannot afford not to take advantage of this unique opportunity to network with institutions which have a total asset base in excess of $13 billion combined with annual operating budgets of more than $1 billion.
