The New York Tech Valley (Albany) Chapter of IFMA was approved by IFMA’s board of directors at their April meeting.  The formation steering committee has worked for a number of months to recruit new members, develop a succession plan and put together a one-year program schedule prior to requesting approval of the new chapter.
