KEYNOTE TOWN HALL

“What’s Next” is the focus for the ERAPPA 2022 Conference Keynote Address.  We have assembled a panel of Higher Education Leaders from the across the Northeast US and Canada for a town hall type discussion to give us their perspective on “what’s next” for facilities leaders.  We are also excited to welcome Lander Medlin, the President and CEO of APPA, as our moderator for this panel.  Lander will lead the panel through a discussion of the issues facing higher education and their impacts on facilities.

We expect the topics will include the changes and trends resulting from the pandemic, the impacts of the population reduction in 2026, the plans for our aging infrastructure and other challenges expected in our future.  The visionary leaders in Higher Education will help us all understand “What’s Next”.

Join us Monday, September 19th for an engaging conversation!

On that day, Will invited 250 people to try and break the negative habit of complaining by going 21 consecutive days without uttering a single gripe. Will gave each person a purple bracelet to be used as a mindfulness tool. His idea: switch the bracelet from wrist-to-wrist with each spoken complaint and keep switching until you go 21 consecutive days without complaining. Will’s idea EXPLODED around the world until now, some 15 year later, the worldwide Complaint Free bracelet total is over 13 Million and climbing.
