ASSOCIATE MEMBERS
Melanie Bamba – RSI Roofing & Solar

Melanie co-chairs the Fireside Chats Committee. When she’s not hosting a monthly chat, she’s behind the scenes helping individual members maximize their visibility and impact within the chapter. She conducts interviews for our Monthly Spotlights, secures locations for many events, and photographs everything from committee meetings to property tours to LYBs! She’s a prominent co-contributor to our social media accounts, so she’s also constantly asking members for relevant industry articles to share with our followers. In addition to Co-Chairing Fireside Chats, Melanie volunteers on Special Events, Communications and Vice Chairs the Associate Members Committee.

Steve Milinkevich has been involved in IFMA San Diego for over 5 years, co-chairing the communications committee for about 4 years now. This past year, Steve has worked to completely overhaul the website, with new programming, better graphics, and faster speeds. It continues to be upgraded, and Steve remains as the primary source for updating the website, and the A/V set-ups at the Chapter events. This past year, Steve was also voted in as the Chapter’s 1st Vice President. Immediately below Chapter President David Suter, Steve is responsible for reviewing contracts, preparing board documents, and acting as a liaison between the various committees and our Executive Board.
