Contribute a Whitepaper to Inside APPA and the APPA Website

Open only to APPA’s Business Partner members

For APPA’s biweekly e-newsletter, Inside APPA, we have created the Business Partner Whitepaper Series and invite you to contribute a case study, technical paper, or research report to be published in a future issue of the newsletter and the APPA Newsfeed page. Inside APPA is distributed biweekly to more than 17,000 educational facilities professionals. 

Note that there is no charge for you to participate; we just want to share your valuable products, services, and industry insights with APPA members, and increase your firm’s exposure and visibility.

Submission Requirements

  • Contributions to the Business Partner Whitepaper Series are open only to current APPA Business Partner members whose dues are paid in full. Sharing your knowledge with fellow APPA members will increase your firm’s exposure and visibility. If you are not yet an APPA Business Partner member, learn more and join by visiting
  • Each published whitepaper will be promoted and linked in the biweekly e-newsletter, Inside APPA. Additionally, it will appear on the Inside APPA newsfeed, and archived on the APPA website as valuable content for members and others to search and review.

This includes facilities topics focused on colleges, universities, K-12 schools and districts, preparatory schools, museums, libraries, city/county governments, federal agencies, and other nonprofit, education-oriented entities.
