A message from President Pesiri
Nov 22, 2020
If you were one of the 260 participants in our very first Virtual Summit, you would agree with me that the event was exciting, enriching, and a great experience. Thank you for your participation. Thank you to our Business Partners, who sponsored this event. A big Shout Out to our Conference Team and Event Producers for such an outstanding event.
It would be customary for me to share my vision and goals for this upcoming year. I think that is hard to do. One of the things that the last eight months have taught us to do well is to pivot. Instead of stating my vision for the upcoming year, I would like to share what is essential.
It is essential that PCAPPA remains relevant. With all the challenges we face, you, PCAPPA, and APPA should be connected. That is how PCAPPA stays relevant. Whether you attend the weekly APPA Town Hall Meetings or a Virtual Summit, or other professional development opportunities, it is more important to stay connected today than we did in the past. PCAPPA’s mission is to provide you information that is appropriate to the times.
We must provide you value. In our support of facilities professionals, we need to continue to provide networking and professional development opportunities that offer you value. Knowledge acquired from PCAPPA and APPA should help make informed decisions. The information provided during the APPA COVID-19 town hall meetings enabled me to make informed decisions to keep my campuses safer while saving my school money. The accrued savings to my institution exceeds the cost of membership. Read more >>

When asked how in the world I went from a flight attendant career to Executive Director of Space and Facilities Management in higher education, I easily explain it was my APPA experience. Through systematic planning, organizing, and adapting to constant change, I evolved into the perfect nontraditional career.
I began my facilities management career over 16 years ago in northern California and landed in Nevada in 2010. I was fortunate to start my Stanford University career who heavily participated in APPA professional development opportunities. I quickly realized the benefit of adopting APPA industry standards and practices that made Stanford a well-oiled facility management machine. My introduction to APPA as a young facilities professional was the Supervisor’s Toolkit. After completing this intensive course, it is fair to say I drank the APPA Kool-Aid.
