Beth Lucas, SFreedman

We are very excited about our 11th Annual Conference that is taking shape. We are preparing a great experience for school facility and custodial managers across the state. Our trade show sold out last year so we are gearing up for another great year of customer and client support from our sponsors. We are so thankful for all of their support. The VSPMA is also preparing some unique opportunities for professional development both within our general sessions and through various break outs through the conference.

We value all of our state participants and have taken the post conference survey results and used the feedback to make our conference even stronger. We are planning to have a diverse group of speakers that will detail many modalities of the school facility management world. We are exploring presentation topics dealing with school safety from a building perspective. We are working with the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice on this. We are also exploring topics that may include child labor law, Infectious diseases and mitigation, legal issues from a building perspective, and issues dealing with fire safety in school from the perspective of a fire marshal.

Our trade show was very diverse last year and it was so popular that we sold all of our booths. The VSPMA values all of our sponsors and could not provide a meaningful conference without their support. We look forward to the new sponsors this year. The collaboration and engagement between our sponsors and attendees forge business relationship and support to follow from years to come. Our sponsors and guest speakers will provide relevant breakout sessions on Tuesday that will cover state of the art practices that will benefit all of those that work in the operations field. There will be something for everyone to include our custodial staff, as well as our operations and maintenance staff. We never stop learning.
