Rocky Mountain APPA (RMA) holds an annual conference each year, combined with educational sessions and networking activities in a regionally customized professional development conference. This year, this regional conference will be hosted together along with the WCUPPA (Western Canadian Universities Physical Plant Administrators) annual conference. These annual meetings are premier events for educational facilities professionals. They are a networking and learning experience for facilities officers, directors, and management personnel at every level from Facilities Management which includes Operations and Maintenance; Campus Planning; Project Management, Construction and Architectural Services; all other institutional services. The educational sessions explore the latest trends, challenges and solutions facing facilities organizations within colleges and universities; K-12 private academies and public school systems; libraries, museums, and other institutions of learning. Rocky Mountain APPA promotes the common interests of planning, maintenance and operation of facilities within the region’s educational institutions, supports and supplements the activities of APPA, and fosters a professional spirit among those engaged in this work.
