General Information

CAPPA is the Central Association of Physical Plant Administrators in institutions, or systems of institutions, which meet the eligibility criteria of higher education, technology, or PK-12. We are a regional chapter of APPA consisting of: United States (Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas); Canada (Manitoba (Province), Nunavut (Territory)); United Mexican States (Aguascalientes, Coahuila, Colima, Guanajuato, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Jalisco, Mexico, Michoacán, Morelos, Nuevo Leon, Puebla, Queretaro, San Luis Potosi, Tamaulipas, Tlaxcala, Veracruz, Zacatecas; Mexico City (Federal District)). Administrators in adjoining states and provinces, even if in another APPA regional association, may elect to join CAPPA.

CAPPA's purpose is to develop and maintain high standards in the administration, maintenance, operation, planning, and development of facilities management in educational institutions; to promote professional ideals and standards to better serve the objectives of education; and to supplement and assist the work of APPA in the Central region.
