2023 Conference Information & Now Offering APPA’s Supervisor Toolkit

By on January 10, 2023

Western Illinois University, Macomb, Illinois

Western Illinois University was founded in 1899. The land for the university was donated to the state of Illinois by Macomb’s Freemasons (Illinois Lodge #17). Macomb was in direct competition with Quincy, Illinois, and other candidates as the site for a “western” university. The Illinois legislature selected Macomb as the location.

The university’s name has changed twice since its foundation as the Western Illinois State Teachers College in 1899: the school was first renamed Western Illinois State Teachers College in 1921 and then to Western Illinois University in 1967.

Today, the Macomb campus consists of 53 buildings over 1,050 acres. Sherman Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Western’s presence in the Quad Cities spans more than 40 years.

APPA’s Supervisor Toolkit Training Registration — Closing March 7th at Noon.

Supervisor Toolkit Registration

March 13-15, 2023: APPA’s Supervisor’s Toolkit Training has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the facilities management professional.  It is a structured, open-ended, and pragmatic approach to developing supervisors. 

It is not so much a teaching program as a development process, designed to help supervisors realize both personal and professional growth. The program has been newly designed as a full three days of training.  This is not your typical training. Join us for a fun engaging training with a Facilitator that works in Facilities Management just like you do.

Breakfast and Lunch each day as well as the 3-Day Training are all included in the price of $350.00 per person. This program is regularly $800/person.
