At the recent Starnet meeting in Nashville, Tennessee held on Novem- ber 4th and 5th there was an APPA Facility Managers panel discussion sponsored by Tandus that essentially discussed the effect of learning facilities condition on occupants.
By condition we mean the design and aesthetics of the space and how they relate to the occupants attitudes while populating that space. APPA used to stand for the Association of Physical Plant Administrators in the late 1960's through the early 1990's. Today, the association is known as AP-PA: Leadership in Educational Facilities, and is most easily recognized and referred to as simply "APPA." The panelists at this presentation were from the University of Tennessee, Tennessee State University and an APPA Leadership consultant.
