IFAI launches online community CONNECT

IFAI

July 13, 2021

Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) has launched CONNECT by IFAI, an online community that will facilitate valuable networking among industry peers and support industry-wide conversations.

“One of many things the last year has taught us is the importance of connection and networking. With this in mind, we’re excited to launch our newest IFAI member benefit, CONNECT by IFAI,” says Steve Schiffman, president and CEO of IFAI.

CONNECT by IFAI is equipped with a variety of features to help users engage with industry peers, find answers and learn with fellow IFAI members. There are also badge and ribbon labels to showcase certifications, member organizations and industry accomplishments.

A discussion board in the online community provides the opportunity to post questions and find answers. A dedicated Resource Library houses documents to allow for resource sharing. Any attachments posted to discussions are automatically archived in the library, and members can add additional resources to share helpful information.

If a member would like to look for a supplier or a fabricator to help complete a project, CONNECT’s directory is available and can be searched by name, location, company, business type and market served.

IFAI.com/CONNECT is open to everyone, but only IFAI members have full access to all the tools.

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works.
