Conferences Guidelines for Business Partner Participation
Illinois APPA (ILAPPA) is an organization composed of public and private higher education facility officers. The State organization is affiliated with the regional and national APPA organizations. School members pay a membership fee to the national organization. Business partners can also pay a membership fee to the national organization. ILAPPA does not have a dues structure for the education members or business partners. ILAPPA is governed by an executive committee that is elected by its members.
Business partners are encouraged to participate in the conferences. It provides an opportunity to share literature and the services they provide to the higher education facility officers that attend the conferences. The following are specific business partner guidelines that are shared with the host school:
- Literature: Business partners should send any literature they want to share to the host school prior to the conference. The host school will place all literature and any hand-out item in a bag for distribution at the registration table.
- Participation: Business partners are encouraged to attend all of the educational and experience exchange sessions. They should not attend the business meeting.
- Building tours: The host school is encouraged to schedule new project tours with the business partners that participated in the project.
- Exhibit space: If the host school wants to have an exhibit area for the business partners, they will determine logistics and cost structure. This cost is in addition to the sponsorship levels.
