The Professional Affairs Committee (PAC) broadens and advances the stature, reputation, prominence, and relevancy of the association and educational facilities practitioners through connections, collaborations, and partnerships with other professional associations; development and advancement of programs that raise the professionalism of the profession; and the continued study and review of emerging industry trends, effective practices, and transforming changes impacting and shaping the direction of the profession.
The committee will work closely with the other APPA committees to create and cultivate a highly collaborative community among APPA members in advancing peer-to-peer learning. The committee will monitor and identify legislative and regulatory issues that have potential impact on members and recommend to the Executive Vice President strategic action and collaboration within and across associations. The committee will continually explore opportunities and recommend action in broadening and deepening the scope of APPA’s reach into all of the professions that comprise the expanse of an educational facilities management portfolio.
Related to APPA’s continuous learning vision, the committee will evaluate and advise the Professional Development Committee and the Executive Vice President on offering continuing education credits supporting credentials related to state licenses and other professional associations.
