Webinar Lunch and Learn Series Announcement

The ERAPPA Board of Directors, in an effort to further expand our educational opportunities for facilities teams at our member schools, has approved our Business Partner Committee to administer technical education opportunities via webinars on topics relevant to facilities operations and management.

The Business Partner Committee has been charged with development and implementation of the “ERAPPA Webinar Lunch and Learn Series.” This new brings timely, innovative and informative best practices to our institutional members throughout the year. The program kicked-off in September 2016 with bi-monthly offerings, on a trial basis. The benefits of the program will be evaluated, based on the compile survey data after 4-sessions, and a determination will be made by the ERAPPA Board regarding continuance. These webinars are at no cost to our members.

We are currently booked through May 2017. 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.

Webinars are organized into 4 technical tracks, that will also be further evaluated by the Board at the conclusion of the trial period. They are:

 Sustainability
 Compliance/Emergency Response
 Design/Construction
 Custodial

The Business Partner Committee has developed the following initial schedule:
