APPA's newly released 2016 Thought Leaders report, Remaking the Facilities Organization, makes the case for a customer-centric higher education facilities organization, and how that focus can be applied to the four major responsibilities of educational facilities organizations. Look for Part 1 of the report in the September/October issue of Facilities Manager, or click on the headline above to download the full report.
There are five (5) elected officer leadership positions on the APPA board, three of which will be on the 2017 ballot (President-Elect, Secretary Treasurer, and VP for Professional Affairs.) Consider nominating yourself or others for the one that best matches your passion and areas of expertise. All applications for election are due no later than December 9, 2016.
The 2015-2016 Facilities Performance Indicators (FPI) and APPA/NACUBO survey cycles are now open. Deadline for both surveys is December 12, 2016, but you can start inputting your data now. To get started, just click on the headline above, and choose to complete one -- or both -- surveys. Your participation is appreciated and critical for fulfilling the strategic vision of your institution.
