Celebrating 100 Years.

It is hard to comprehend or imagine the sheer numbers of people – fellow professionals, students, administrators, faculty members and campus communities – that APPA has touched over ten decades of time.

APPA has impacted careers, influenced thinking, advanced research, and supported our institutions in fulfilling their educational mission. Join us as we pay tribute to this important milestone, and as we reflect on our past, celebrate our many achievements, and prepare, together, for an exciting and successful future.

Join Us In Our Celebration.

The APPA Centennial Project

The Centennial Project is an opportunity for all APPA members to share their memories, to include photos, videos, and other “soft copy” images, through APPA’s Centennial Image Bank. Your photos and videos will be used by APPA to commemorate our anniversary on the APPA website, in Facilities Manager magazine, in interactive touch screen apps, commemorative videos, and much more. Share photos and videos of your facilities team, and offer your thoughts on APPA as you reflect on our 100th year. Send us images of special moments with colleagues and friends at regional and chapter events, and tell us what made those times so memorable for you. Tell us about your "APPA Journey" and let us know how and why you became part of our profession. Visit the APPA Centennial Image Bank today.

APPA’s Facilities Manager Magazine

Now and through July 2014, APPA’s member magazine will feature special 100th anniversary feature articles detailing the history of APPA; informative interviews from members past and present; revealing perspectives on how our profession and our educational institutions have changed over time; and much, much more.

APPA Film Project

As part of its anniversary celebration, APPA is using this rare opportunity to help us recognize the very essence of what makes APPA, its regions, and its chapters so special to the professional and personal lives of its members, and to acknowledge its tremendous value and resources. To this end, APPA is organizing several film projects that will convey why APPA plays such a vital role in our profession, and to our institutional mission. Visit the APPA YouTube Channel to view the anniversary teaser and other videos, for a test of what you can see and expect, as our anniversary celebration unfolds.

APPA 2014 Conference and Exposition

APPA’s 100th anniversary celebration will culminate with its 100-year conference, to be held July 21-23, 2014 at the Sheraton Harbor Island Resort and Marina in San Diego, California. APPA is expecting a record turnout for its annual conference and exposition, as we reflect on our past and look forward to an exciting future. Make plans today to attend.
