APPA’s Supervisor Toolkit Registration — 
Registration Closed – March 1

Supervisor Toolkit Registration

March 10-12, 2024: 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 $400.00 per person. This program is regularly over $800/person.
