2021 CAPPA Annual Conference



2021 CAPPA Annual Conference

October 10 - 12, 2021


Renaissance Tulsa Hotel & Convention Center

Tulsa, OK 


After a year of uncertainty and change, CAPPA is extremely thrilled
to be hosting 
the 2021 CAPPA Annual Conference in
Tulsa, Oklahoma on October 10 - 12, 2021. 
Our theme is "Shared Resilience - Connect. Inspire. Unite"
in honor of the post-normal year of 2020-21. 
Facilities Management, and especially Higher Education,
is in a state of change. We need to share our vision
for this changing environment. 
As Winston Churchill said, "Now this is not the end. 
It is not even the beginning of the end. 

But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

Due to the changing environment associated with the pandemic,
a decision will be made prior to July 1 regarding if we will host
a face-to-face conference, or if it will be a hybrid of
virtual and face-to-face. 
Due to budget issues in higher education currently,
and restriction on travel still in effect,
we NEED higher education attendees to be able to be present. 
We sincerely hope, that with your help,
a face-to-face conference will be possible. 

Registration is now open! 
Please take a look at all of the information
regarding the conference at the website linked below. 

This conference may look different from past conferences. 
We currently will not be offering tours on Sunday,
nor any tours for spouse/guest attendees. 
Plans are still in flux, so stay tuned
for more information as it becomes available.  

Make plans to attend now! 
Remember, you can register now, but pay after July 1. 
And spread the word . . . the success of our conference is all about you!

The educational session agenda will be available sometime
in late May or early June,and we will forward information
to you when that information is available.
If you would like to present at the conference,
there are still opportunities available.
Just email 
[email protected] or
Angie Mitchell at

Looking forward to seeing you all in Tulsa!

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.

Supervisor's Toolkit

Supervisor’s Toolkit 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 teach 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. To learn about upcoming dates and locations, click HERE.


The CAPPA Board of Directors is extremely pleased to announce that CAPPA has funded 60 full scholarships to the online APPA Supervisor’s Toolkit.
Three sessions of 20 attendees each will be fully funded by CAPPA.

The Supervisors Toolkit scholarships shall be limited initially to two per school, with a drawing to be held from the applicants.

Be sure and include both email and telephone number, along with the Institution in your submission.
