Hailing from almost every U.S. state and as far away as Saudi Arabia, close to 400 educational facilities professionals are convening in New Orleans this week for two of APPA’s signature professional development programs: The Institute for Facilities Management and the Leadership Academy, sold-out events held simultaneously under the umbrella of APPA U, January 8–11, 2024.
The Institute for Facilities Management includes 35 courses in the four core areas of General Administration, Operations & Maintenance, Energy & Utilities, and Planning, Design & Construction. Courses cover topics ranging from master planning and capital asset management to environmental health and safety.
The Leadership Academy focuses on building leadership skills within facilities departments to help advance educational institutions more broadly. Courses foster personal and professional effectiveness skills at four levels: individual, interpersonal, managerial, and organizational.
Registration is now open now for the APPA 2024 Spring Conference in Nashville (April 15–17) along with three in-person events in San Antonio in late June: the Institute for Facilities Management, the Leadership Academy, and a bilingual (English and Spanish) Supervisor’s Toolkit.
