FLAPPA Conference and Expo 2020

March 11-13th | Tampa Bay, FL | Booth #111

The Florida Association of Physical Plant Administrators (FLAPPA) was started over ten years ago by a small, key group of facilities professionals from universities around Florida. When looking at the APPA organization as a whole, this group realized that we needed something more, something different. It was evident that there was a need to involve our frontline supervisors and facilities staff; providing additional opportunities to learn from each other and utilize the experience and knowledge of the people around us to educate and improve.
Founded in 1914, APPA: The Association of Higher Education Facilities Officers is the oldest not-for-profit organization dedicated to the maintenance, production and promotion of quality educational facilities to enhance the education of today’s students.  The more than 4,500 APPA members represent learning institutions from across the United States and Canada and around the world.  Universities and colleges comprise the largest segment of membership.  APPA members are vice presidents for facilities, directors of physical plants, associate directors, facilities managers, and managers for a variety of specific facilities operations.  Members manage the properties of colleges and universities, school districts, secondary schools, law and medical schools, seminaries, military installations, museums, churches and government organizations.

In April 2004, fourteen colleges and universities from across the state came together and discussed the idea of forming a Florida Chapter of APPA, which is now known as FLAPPA.
