1st Conference for Elevator U @ RMA APPA 2015

RMA03 RMA02 RMA01 RMA10 RMA09 RMA08 RMA07 RMA06 RMA05 RMA04On September 9-11, 2015 Elevator U attended the annual RMA APPA conference at Big Sky, Montana. The attendee’s were from public and private universities, and community colleges that came together for an opportunity to learn and network together. Attendee’s from seven states Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming plus the Canadian Provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and the Northwest Territories, and new in 2013, the Mexican states of Chihuahua, Durango, Nayarit, Sinaloa, and Sonora. The event included a business partner’s exhibit hall for firms that support the facilities profession. Elevator U exhibited for the first time at this year’s conference to network with facilities professionals, to educate them on elevator safety for college students through its “Rise Up, Safe Rider” program, and we were looking for an introduction to the person that is responsible for their facilities elevators. We ultimately planned on getting that person the information to explain the benefits that Elevator U offers to educational facilities. The attendees were able to network with other professionals from around the country and share in their expertise. The educational facilities workplace has been transformed in recent years by a variety of forces. Intense competition, advancing technology, changing values, and a global economy have created new challenges for the management of educational facilities. This organizations fresh approach of developing leadership towards organizing and managing this new environment, shows us all the new direction of educational facilities in the future.
