Golf Outing a Great Success!
Ronald'sw house
Friday, June 1st was a great success for the San Diego Chapter of IFMA.  Not only did we host our 21st Charity Golf Outing at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, but we successfully raised over $14,000 for our charity of choice, the Ronald McDonald House of San Diego.
The day started off early at 6:00 AM, as several IFMA San Diego Members and Sponsors took to the streets in a chapter sponsored "Red Boot" collection event.
Then it was off to the Rancho Bernardo Inn for a day of golf, fun and tons of networking.  Congratulations goes out to our event winners:
First Place:
Bob Sanchez, Robert Ramirez, Steve Anderson and Rick Johnson
Second Place:
Adam Doar, Bill Kuhnert, Damon (BKM) and Alisa (BKM) 
Third Place:
Brett Tyrrell, Scott McWherter, Greg Jacobs and Steve Aquista.
Many thanks goes out to the many members of the Golf Committee, Community Service Committee and Sponsorship Committee that work so hard together to make this event happen!

Innovative Ways for Your Business to Find Savings
San Diego Gas & Electric offers these tips and tricks to save on your company's energy consumption:
  1. Occupancy sensors. If no one is using certain areas in your facility, why are you paying to light, heat or cool those spaces? Occupancy sensors make lighting more sustainable by not constantly illuminating sporadically occupied areas - such as breakrooms, restrooms, loading docks, seldom-used passageways and storage areas.
  2. Telecommuting. If you don't need staff on hand, allowing employees to telecommute could help reduce costs. Getting the same production with less overhead gives a big boost to your business's bottom line.
  3. Bartering. When cash isn't an option, consider bartering with your product, service or expertise. You may be able to avoid the exchange of cash entirely. In the US, barter transactions have grown to $16 billion in value annually. If you can provide something useful for another business, start by offering that in exchange for something you need.
  4. Leaner meetings. Forty-seven percent of workers say their biggest waste of time at work is attending too many meetings. Create a culture of fewer meetings that are run more efficiently. Ensure meetings are productive by only inviting essential employees and be prepared with a set agenda to help achieve actionable outcomes.
  5. Sustainability. Converting your lighting to LEDs can save you money and visually improve your space. LEDs are 44% more efficient than fluorescent lighting, and it's predicted to represent over 75% of all lighting sales by 20301 - so businesses certainly see its potential. Check out SDG&E's current list of instant lighting rebates at sdge.com/instantrebates.
