Charge

The Professional Affairs Committee (PAC) has a key role in developing, recommending and executing best practices within the educational facilities environment. It is a launch platform for the vetting of ideas, information and tools to sustain and enhance organizational and leadership responsibilities. Further, it is responsible for recognition of “institutional” excellence by considering applications for such institutional awards as the Award for Excellence in Facilities Management (AFE), the Effective & Innovative Practices (E&I), and the Sustainability award as well as recognition of “individual” service and achievement by considering applications for such individual awards as the Meritorious Service, the APPA Fellow, and the Pacesetter award.
