President's Welcome

Pinpoint IMG 7832On 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.

Join me in Washington, D.C. for the ERAPPA 2017 Annual Meeting from October 29th through November 1stat the Omni Shoreham Hotel. It will be another exceptional Annual Meeting, especially if you are there!
