MAPPA Annual Educational Conference

Each year the members of MAPPA gather for an annual conference to renew our commitment to our profession, our motivations, and to each other as peers. The MAPPA Conference Website will be updated as information is available. Please check for updated information for the latest on program offerings, sponsoring opportunities and much more!


Drive-In Workshops From APPA

APPA Drive-In Workshops provide a localized and convenient learning and training experience. These half-day workshops are hosted by APPA member institutions, with sponsorship support from APPA Business Partners. APPA member colleges, universities, and K-12 school systems and academies are encouraged to host a Facilities Drive-In Workshop. The workshop provides an excellent opportunity for facilities professionals in your local area to learn the latest trends and to network with area professionals and peers. APPA facilities professionals and APPA Business Partners with an interest in holding or sponsoring an APPA Drive-In Workshop should contact Corey Newman at APPA.

Supervisor’s Toolkit Sessions

Supervisor’s Toolkit has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the facilities management professional.  It is a structured, open-ended, and pragmatic approach to developing supervisors.  It is not so much a teach program as a development process, designed to help supervisors realize both personal and professional growth.


APPA Credentialing

The Certified Educational Facilities Professional credential (CEFP) is a certification designed for both aspiring and existing educational facilities professionals with eight years of combined education and professional facilities management experience. Earning the CEFP demonstrates that you have a mastery of professional expertise and is a mark of superior proficiency in the core competencies for education facilities professionals.
