Spring 2012 Chapter Meeting

Phillips Exeter Academy is located in the town of Exeter, which was one of the four original towns established in NH. Exeter was first settled in 1638 along the Exeter and Squamscott Rivers, making it an ideal location as a shipbuilding center and West Indies trading port. Today, this quaint community is home to unique shops and restaurants along Water St., as well as Phillips Exeter Academy, the location for the next NNECERAPPA Conference. With a 231 year old campus (established in 1781), the historical nature of who we are as a school comes into play in many ways. As we plan to host the next Spring NNECERAPPA Meeting on March 8th and 9th, we have been keeping our theme of “Preserving Our Heritage” front and center. A campus tour on the first morning of the conference will highlight historical points. Our keynote speaker at the lunch that follows will give attendees a sense of what is historically important to our school. The educational program weaves in sessions with topics relating to our theme. Those attending are sure to find plenty to make their trip to our campus rewarding. Our four-track educational program includes sessions under the headings of Custodial, Planning for Success, Wayfinding, and Construction/Design Management. Add it all up and you have an educational program that has something for everyone, as well as networking opportunities with your colleagues from other institutions and Business Partners, and of course, good food to top it all off. Following Thursday night’s banquet, we will be rolling out an evening of entertainment that will be fun, interactive, and challenging- come see what that’s all about! We look forward to welcoming you to our historic and picturesque campus. If you haven’t done so already, plan on registering soon, still at the low full conference registration price of $99. With all meals included, you won’t find a better training and networking opportunity around. Register on line at www.erappa.com/nne.
