Association of Physical Plant Administrators
The Leadership of Facilities Management is grounded in education, collaboration, and service. With one eye on providing excellence in today’s educational environment, and one always trained on adapting, enhancing, and transforming the facilities of the future, APPA seeks to create positive impact in educational facilities on three important levels:
APPA transforms individual facilities professionals into higher performing managers and leaders, which helps transform member institutions into more inviting and supportive learning environments, elevates the recognition and value of educational facilities and their direct impact on the recruitment and retention of students, faculty and staff.
APPA hosts an annual conference with a platform for discussion, information sharing, networking, and much more. Discover best practices with vendors and educational breakout sessions throughout the conference.

Central Association of Physical Plant Administrators
CAPPA is the Central Association of Physical Plant Administrators in institutions of higher education. We are a chapter of APPA within the central United States including Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Texas and the Canadian Province of Manitoba. 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 physical plant facilities of institutions of higher learning, and to promote professional ideals and standards to better serve the objectives of higher education. CAPPA often offers the Supervisor's Toolkit.

Arkansas Association of Facilities Administrators
The Arkansas Association of Facilities Administrators (AAFA) is established for the purpose to develop and maintain high standards in the administration, maintenance, operation, planning, and development of physical plants in institutions of higher education; to promote professional codes and standards to better serve the objectives of colleges and universities and to engage in such other related activities as may be desirable or required to fulfill the objectives of the organization.
A further purpose is to assist and supplement the work of CAPPA, Central Association of Physical Plant Administrators and APPA, The Association of Higher Education Facilities Officers.
AAFA is the local chapter of APPA & CAPPA for Arkansas facilities professionals. AAFA offers two conferences a year (Fall & Spring). The fall conference hosts the elections of officers for the ensuing term, then usually the President-Elect hosts the Spring meeting at their perspective campus.
