Report on the Mexico Initiative—Collaboration with Three University Systems
Last week Lander Medlin, APPA's executive vice president, traveled to Mexico to discuss membership and greater collaboration between APPA and three major university systems in north and west Mexico: Tec de Monterrey (ITESM), TecMilenio, and Tec Salud. The three systems comprise more than 60 campuses. APPA and our six regional associations have been working together to develop and enhance our connections with Mexican institutions of higher education.

APPA is Now an ANSI Standards Developer
The American National Standards Institute’s Executive Standards Committee has announced that APPA has been formally approved as an ANSI Accredited Standards Development Organization (SDO), marking the conclusion of a six-month-plus application process. With the accreditation in place, the APPA Standards & Codes Council (ASCC) is now poised to begin development on its inaugural suite of ANSI standards, which will relate to the principles of Total Cost of Ownership as they apply to the higher education facilities management arena. To learn more about APPA's ANSI Standards program, or for information regarding participation in the standards development process, contact Sam Waymire, APPA's staff administrator to the ASCC.
