Professional Organizations

Facilities Management is dedicated to the continuous improvement in our people, processes and services.  To that end we maintain active membership in the following organizations.

Leadership in Educational Facilities

"APPA was founded in Chicago in 1914 by representatives from fourteen Midwest institutions. Over the past 35 years, membership has grown - from 100 in 1970 to the current membership levels which exceeds 5,200 individuals in over 1,500 learning institutions throughout the United States, Canada, and abroad.

Organized originally as the Association of Superintendents of Buildings and Grounds, the association later became the Association of Physical Plant Administrators of Universities and Colleges. In 1991, the name APPA: The Association of Higher Education Facilities Officers was adopted to reflect increased higher education-based campus responsibilities. In 2005, the association began to identify itself simply as APPA, to pay homage to its long history, but to be inclusive of all types of educational institutions."*
