Potential Topics/Areas of Interest
The expectations to reach the finish line of projects, personnel planning, and maintenance of a safe, clean and positive environment for our campus communities has remained the same and never been more fast paced.
The challenges of the built environment at the educational institutions our members represent are changing rapidly and consistently. In response to those needs, our business partners are quickly updating their products and services in response.
Collaboration, learning and sharing are the fundamentals our organization runs with. As we move forward with our responsibilities, change, growth and information must be at our fingertips in order to keep up with the competition and provide the best levels of services for our institutions.
The 2024 NNECERAPPA Host Committee is also interested in if your presentations will fit into any of the following suggested topics:
  • Maintenance & Skilled Trades (includes HVAC, Electrical, etc)
  • Custodial/Grounds
  • Administration, Staffing, HR, & Leadership
  • Capital Construction & Planning
Selection Process 
Presentations from NNECERAPPA member institutions and non-proprietary presentations from business partners are welcomed. Joint offerings that show case effective partnerships between businesses and institutional members are encouraged. The Professional Development committee will review submissions and selection will be based on the following;
  • Overall Quality
  • Timeliness of the topic to facilities management
  • Relevance to the conference theme
  • Qualification(s) of the presenter(s)
  • Innovative ideas
Learning Units and Professional Development Credits 
Although attendees typically seek topics of interest to them personally or to their employer; they may also be seeking presentations that provide them with continuing education credits in various disciplines, including but not limited to: architecture (AIA credits) and Green Building Certification Institute, LEED Professional Credential Maintenance Program Credits. Presentation and topics that can or may provide credits in one or more of these categories should be identified.
