IFMA Awards For Excellence

Dan Castner IFMA

Dan Castner, an architect and practice leader at BAM, has been nominated as a Distinguished Associate Member of IFMA. This award is presented to members who have “provided sustained, outstanding leadership to a chapter, council and/or the Association at the international level.”

Recently named Programs Committee Co-Chair in 2014, Dan has planned numerous successful events through IFMA, such as the summer wine tasting, which was so popular that it doubled the expected attendance to the program. The success of this fundraising effort led to his selection as one of the IFMA members to present a $20,000 donation, the largest donation of any chapter in the world, at IFMA’s World Workplace event. Dan has attended World Workplace for the past two years, and in 2014 served as an education session moderator. Besides his success in fundraising, Dan also spearheaded a joint chapter event between the New York City and Westchester/Hudson Valley chapter, and continues to plan events to bring the two chapters together.

The award winner will be announced January 26th at a dinner hosted by the New York City IFMA chapter. Best of luck, Dan!
