APPA’s BOK Authors Publish Key Information about the Facilities Management Industry
Those with industry knowledge, and a desire to share their expertise in a key facilities management areas, are needed to write and update chapters for APPA’s Body of Knowledge (BOK). You know more than you think you know, and others in the field will benefit from your knowledge, insights, suggestions, and alternate ways of handling issues at their institutions.
A searchable, digital database, the BOK serves as the go-to resource for facilities management professionals, and as the foundational text for facilities management education, including the Institute for Facilities Management and the EFP/CEFP credentialing program.
“The Body of Knowledge is a dynamic resource that requires regular updating and additions to stay relevant as the facilities management industry evolves,” said Maggie Kinnaman, BOK Emeritus Editor-In-Chief. “To make it all come together, we rely on the expertise of authors who have hands-on experience dealing with specific topics at their institution.”
A support network is in place for writers interested in publishing a chapter in the BOK. Authors work with content coordinators and articles undergo editing and a peer review before publishing.
Potential authors should contact the content coordinator in their area of interest, and discuss potential new chapter topics, or chapters they are interested in evaluating or updating.
