President's Welcome

Walsh headshotOn behalf of my colleagues on the Board of Directors, welcome to 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.

Our website is ever-evolving in response to members’ input and needs; it is rich in information including: links to the upcoming annual meeting, chapter events, scholarship applications, regional professional development offerings, and even career opportunities at institutions within our region.

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.

Whether you are a current or prospective member, we hope you will join us in Erie, PA for the ERAPPA 2019 Annual Meeting from September 29th through October 2nd at Sheraton Erie Bayfront hotel. It promises to be an exciting learning and networking opportunity for all who attend.  We look forward to seeing you there!
