 Join us in Portland, Oregon!

Pacific Coast and Rocky Mountain Regions of APPA are teaming up for a sensational joint Conference from October 9-11, 2022, in Portland, Oregon. With the theme Envisioning the Future, this transformational educational event will bring together professionals and industry experts to share knowledge, ideas, best practices and more. 

Our conference location is the vibrant Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront, located by the Willamette River. This trendy venue has newly remodeled conference spaces and rooms and is within walking distance to many popular Portland attractions - the famous Lan Su Chinese Garden, Oregon Zoo, the world's largest bookstore - Powell’s City of Books, restaurants, breweries and many more! Conveniently, the Portland International Airport is less than 10 miles away with multiple modes of transportation. 

We, PCAPPA - RMA are Envisioning the Future, and we look forward to seeing you in person as we:

  • Re-engage in discussions of key staffing challenges in our institutions, focusing on the wellbeing of our staff. Topics include staff engagement practices, recruiting, onboarding, interviews/post interview assessments, career development, wellness programs and activities.
  • Re-connect through deep discussion and celebration of the diversity within our profession and share knowledge on how to continue developing equitable and inclusive practices. Topics include telecommuting and its impact on front line staff, restroom parity, cultural competence (shifting to values), and women in facilities.
  • Re-invent by sharing stories of innovations developed to navigate the global pandemic of the past two years. Topics include post-COVID lessons, funding sources, ASHRAE, technology, tools, space reuse, who is MERV, and preparing for the next disruption.
