CAPPA 2019

The Central region of APPA, CAPPA, is thrilled to host the 2019 annual conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  Our theme is “Centered on Progress for Facilities Management” - based on Winnipeg’s central location within the North American continent.  We all realize that facilities management is changing quickly, so we have to be “progressing” through the technologically driven environment we are now in. 

Registration is now open!  Please visit the 2019 Conference website and start planning to attend now.

The Professional Development Committee is currently working on getting high quality educational sessions to be available during the conference.  The agenda will be available sometime in April 2019. 

Also, please look at the optional activities that are available prior and during the conference.  We are offering spouses and guests the opportunity to just attend the Event at the Manitoba Museum and the Awards Banquet, at a reduced cost.

We look forward to seeing you in Winnipeg!

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.
