Welcome to St. Louis!  We are looking forward to your visit for CAPPA MAPPA and know that you'll have a great time.  From eclectic boutiques and signature cuisine to exciting nightlife and live entertainment, St. Louis has something for everyone.  Our host hotel, the St. Louis Union Station is just steps from numerous downtown attractions, restaurants, galleries, as well as the MetroLink light rail system.

Centrally located in America’s heartland, St. Louis is an easy drive or quick flight away.  With an average of 500 daily flights and 68 non-stop destinations, Lambert -St. Louis International Airport sits just minutes from downtown with convenient access to interstates and the MetroLink light rail system.

St. Louis is a foodies delight, with many diverse dining options.  One can enjoy Peruvian, Italian, French, Mediterranean and more cuisine from around the world!  And with all the green spaces in St. Louis, you’ll stay fit too.  St. Louis boasts miles & miles of green – ready for you to explore.  In addition to the gateway Arch National Park along the Mississippi River, there’s Great Rivers Greenway (a 600-mile network of trails), Forest Park (nearly twice the size of Central Park) and much more!

So come enjoy education and connections of CAPPA MAPPA, the sights and sounds of St. Louis, and  maybe even some of the great cultural treasures!  See you in September.

General Information

CAPPA is the Central Association of Physical Plant Administrators in institutions, or systems of institutions, which meet the eligibility criteria of higher education, technology, or PK-12. We are a regional chapter of APPA consisting of: United States (Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas); Canada (Manitoba (Province), Nunavut (Territory)); United Mexican States (Aguascalientes, Coahuila, Colima, Guanajuato, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Jalisco, Mexico, Michoacán, Morelos, Nuevo Leon, Puebla, Queretaro, San Luis Potosi, Tamaulipas, Tlaxcala, Veracruz, Zacatecas; Mexico City (Federal District)). Administrators in adjoining states and provinces, even if in another APPA regional association, may elect to join CAPPA.

CAPPA's purpose is to develop and maintain high standards in the administration, maintenance, operation, planning, and development of facilities management in educational institutions; to promote professional ideals and standards to better serve the objectives of education; and to supplement and assist the work of APPA in the Central region.
