Dear SRAPPA Members,

If your campus is like mine, things are moving so fast you wonder how you get everything done. So, if you took the time to read this note – I promise to keep it short.

2018 SRAPPA Annual Conference Update

The 2018 Conference in Greenville, SC was another successful conference.  If you were there you know how great the topics were and the down town area had plenty to see.  If you weren’t there – well, there is always next year.  Start making your plans for Kentucky!

Scholarship Awards Update

SRAPPA awarded 25 scholarships this month to attend the APPA Institute for Facilities Management or the Leadership Academy. I want to remind you that we accept educational scholarship applications two times per year.  Make your plans and get your requests in soon.

Last year, SRAPPA also provided $5,000 to the active state chapters to use for education. Don’t forget to check with them as well.

EFP/CEFP Credentialing

APPA is dropping the EFP designation and has offered those who have it a path to CEFP.  Check their web site for more information. Please take advantage of one of the SRAPPA Credentialing discount coupons we’ve secured to provide the CEFP exam for $550 (normally $1,300). This package includes the online prep course & test, with another test attempt within 30 days if needed. PLUS, SRAPPA provides a refund of $150 for CEFPs for successfully passing the exam.

Other News

Supervisor’s Toolkit is going through an update and SRAPPA is offering the class often this year.  IF you have not been yet, now is the time.

If you think you would like to be involved at a Facilitator, reach out to our VP of Education Andy Maddox.

THE SRAPPA Board and Committees Need You!

There are a lot of things going on in the Region and the board would love to hear from you.  We like to know what is working and what is not. We especially like to hear from those who are willing to pitch in and help.  Maybe you would like to help but don’t know where you could fit in.  Reach out to us and we will try to find you a place to participate.

Please consider taking the next step by getting involved in making a difference in this wonderful organization!

I hope to see you at one of our State Conferences. And don’t forget APPA in Denver this July.

Until we meet again, I hope you have a Blessed Day,

 

TWJ
