Bylaw Changes- Voting Opening Soon

Revised Ballot for Proposed ERAPPA By-Law Revisions

Based on feedback received, the ballot for the proposed ERAPPA By-Law changes has been revised to provide the membership the ability to vote on each individual proposed change. The original ballot circulated on the morning of October 7, 2021, is rescinded.

If you have already cast your vote on the single vote ballot, for consistency I would kindly ask that you vote again using this updated four vote ballot. Apologies for this additional request. It is important we listen to our membership and provide the means to address concerns and implement helpful suggestions.

Your inputs and engagement are critically important to our continued success as an organization. I would like to sincerely thank you for taking the time to review and consider these proposed by-law revisions.

Should you have any questions please feel free to contact me at Arthur.Walsh@dal.ca.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, welcome to the website for the Eastern Region of APPA. As the regional affiliate of APPA International that spans the Eastern United States and Canada, our organization promotes and facilitates the learning and engagement of facilities professionals. We provide professional development scholarships to our institutional members, as well as educational programming and networking opportunities for all of our members.

There are ample opportunities to take advantage of that ERAPPA and APPA have to offer. If you are not already involved, I would encourage you to seek out your local chapter and attend their meetings. These meetings provide low cost professional development and networking opportunities. ERAPPA’s annual meeting held each fall is another great venue for learning, meeting colleagues, and developing relationships with our many supportive business partners. In addition, ERAPPA and the chapter provide APPA-sponsored professional development throughout the year. Look for announcements about Supervisor’s Toolkit, Leadership Academy, Pathway to Professionalism (P2P), Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP) credentialing, and webinars. Lastly, explore the many resources and training that are available through APPA. The value is unbeatable.

Please explore the website to see the opportunities are available to you – your local chapters, ERAPPA, and APPA have much to offer to help you be a successful facilities management professional.

As you peruse the website and find that you have questions, please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have. Your input is important; ERAPPA is YOUR organization.
