In a continuing effort to further expand our educational opportunities for facilities teams at our member schools, The ERAPPA Board of Directors is pleased to offer technical education opportunities via webinars, on topics relevant to facilities operations and management through our “Lunch and Learn Series.” We are excited about the opportunity to facilitate these ongoing programs, which are offered exclusively to ERAPPA members.
The Business Partner Committee has been charged with the development, implementation and ongoing management of the “ERAPPA Webinar Lunch and Learn Series.” Our objective is to bring new, timely, innovative and informative best practices to our institutional members throughout the year. The program kicked-off in September 2016 with bi-monthly offerings, and due to its success, has continued on a quarterly, annual schedule, with sessions in February, May, August and November. The success of the program will continue to be monitored through “live” surveys conducted at the conclusion of sessions. This allows for immediate feedback regarding the quality of our presentation so that adjustments can be made, as needed. These webinars are at no cost to our members.
How to Participate:
Sessions are currently booked through May 2018. Those who would like to present a future Webinar Lunch and Learn should complete the ERAPPA Annual Conference “Call for Papers” and respond “YES” When prompted for your interest. BP Members who partner with institutional members will be given strong consideration.
It is our goal to house a perpetual “Call for Papers” located within the Members section of our Website. This will allow for broader access for our members who wish to participate in this program, while remaining exclusive to ERAPPA. This will be a joint effort between the Business Partners Committee, Professional Development Committee and the Technology & Communications Committee over the next couple of months. We will share updates as new information regarding this process becomes available. Those who submit abstracts through this new process will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, and notified, if selected. This will also enable us to maintain a surplus of great content for future presentation opportunities.
