TAPPA is now Accepting Abstracts & Proposals for their 2020 TAPPA Educational Conference & Business Partner Fair.

Submissions will be accepted through December 20, 2019

Collaboration and sharing is at the heart of any successful education program. With that in mind, TAPPA would like to encourage you to present a breakout session at the 2020 Annual Conference. Presenting provides you with an excellent opportunity to share your knowledge, experience, and outcomes with your peers in the physical plant administration fields. Abstract submissions should offer education and be designed as thought-provoking presentations that provide practical, timely, and hands-on information in the following areas:

  • Energy and Utility Management
  • Space Utilization and Management
  • Sustainability
  • Grounds Maintenance Innovations and Planning
  • Custodial Maintenance Initiatives
  • Procurement Initiatives and Best Practices
  • Design and Construction Excellence
  • Emergency/Risk Management
  • Employee Engagement
  • Employee Training
  • Employee Hiring
  • Organizational Safety Programs
  • Preventive Maintenance Programs
  • Residence Hall and Dining Partnerships with Facilities

Breakout sessions will be 45-50 minutes in length and a few minutes for Q&A. You may present individually, or as a group. CEU Certified presentations a plus! Joint presentations between Business partners and Educational Institutions also a plus!
