Greeted with the enticing aroma of freshly grilled pollo and carne asada from a street cart, IFMA LA’s November 2017 New Member Mixer kicked off at the hidden treasure of LA’s own Greenbar Distillery in the Art’s District. While members and guests filed into the low-key space of Greenbar they were instantly initiated into the world of the LA’s largest portfolio of Organic Spirits. Upon strolling up the stairs to the tasting room, floor to ceiling windows overlook the entire distilling process. Signature cocktails crafted by Top-Shelf bartenders loosened the spirits of the attendees and prompted the rest of the evening to ensue.
As the evening was already under way, with the excitement of new conversations flowing, Jackie Rivera, Vice-President of IFMA LA, with a little help from a new member’s whistle, attention was drawn to the stage. With a generous sponsorship from Collaboration Solutions, Inc, new members were introduced and given the opportunity to share with the entirety of the group their vocation, along with a personal note to stand out. From snip-its of Tech’s who don’t like to play video games, to being able to squat 436 Pounds, each new member became intertwined with the family that has become IFMA LA.
Greenbar Distillery then lead two private tours of their facilities describing in detail the processes necessary to create their masterpieces. As one group toured, the other kept enjoying cocktails and Networking with individuals from a vast array of industries. From LAX Facility Managers, to Environmental Consultants, the event truly highlighted the benefits of being a part of this group. As Jackie noted in her opening statements, “Welcome to the family, we are all here for you.”
