Message From Our President

The National School Plant Management Association is very proud to announce our 22st Annual Conference to be held in Rogers, Arkansas in April-May, 2017. The dates of the conference will be from April 30th-May 3rd at the Embassy Suites Northwest Arkansas Hotel, Spa, and Convention Center located in the center of the Ozark Mountains in beautiful northwest Arkansas. NSPMA had 28 states representing school plant managers from across the nation at the 2016 conference and hopes to increase this number in 2017. What a great experience for our vendors to have first-hand access to facility managers from around the country. Conference benefits include presentations that will focus on a “Facilities Masters” track that including numerous topics on Facility Management & Preventive Maintenance, Energy Management, Human Resources, Green Schools, Facility & Grounds Operations, School Safety, and Custodial topics.

What an exciting time to share and see new innovative things and to explore what our neighbors are doing across the country. Our vendors have an opportunity to reach out and gain business and contacts from stakeholders all across the country as well. There are major sponsorship levels that we encourage our vendors to explore. There are some positive advantages of being a committed sponsor to the association. Please see the NSPMA sponsorship forms for those advantages and opportunities.

There are many opportunities for our conference attendees and partners to make new friends in the facility management world and to learn new things through our break-out sessions. We will have excellent speakers that will talk about a range of topics so that everyone should be able to learn something new from the conference and hopefully apply that knowledge to a real world application. As we move forward in the next few months, please do not hesitate to check out our website @ The association also has the capability to give exemplary customer service to our vendors and participants.
