    Leadership Academy Track 1

    Level I helps your institution achieve sustained superior results by focusing on making individual leaders more effective. The most successful teams and organizations are led and driven by the character, strengths, and talents of their individual members. Developing that strength of character and releasing individual potential is an inside-out process. Level I helps participants explore their values and highest priorities, increase productivity by staying focused on those priorities, improve leadership skills and trust-based relationships, and achieve a healthy work/life balance. Participants will discover that the pursuit of effectiveness will have enduring positive impacts on both their personal and professional lives. This level includes a 360-degree benchmark providing participants with feedback from managers, peers, and direct reports and clear indicators of their top strengths as well as areas to target for improvement.

    Skills Learned
    • Leaders learn to be effective leaders, not victims, and are responsible and accountable for their actions and subsequent consequences.
    • Leaders learn to live by a personal vision, mission, and values commitment that serves to guide their life.
    • Leaders learn that credibility and integrity stem from personal trustworthiness that is demonstrated in all they say and do.

    Keynote Speaker: Dave Davlin
    Minnetonka Ballroom
    Over 25 years ago, Dave Davlin began bringing smiles to faces with a form of entertainment he developed as a young boy. From NBA and major college arenas across America to the Summer Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea— and even to the world-famous Branson Strip— “Travelin” Davlin has entertained people of every age and background. His amazing ability with basketballs even landed his name and picture in the 1990 Guinness Book of World Records. Dave began to hone his speaking skills in the early 90’s as a national speaker in the public schools across America. Combining his entertainment ability with a powerful message, he was instrumental in the fight for education and against drugs. At the advice of friends working in corporate America, Dave began to develop presentations for the corporate and association market and the rest is history. He now speaks at numerous corporate and associational conferences each year. From public school students to CEOs, Dave’s message has made a difference in the lives of thousands, and his impact continues to grow each year as he shares his philosophy and wisdom through speaking and writing.

    Internships: Shaping the Future of Educational Facilities  (Laura Kirkendall)
    Nokomis A

    The field of education facilities has a large population of professionals nearing retirement age, but there are limited young professionals entering the field.  The unavoidable challenge must be addressed, which is why the APPA Student Internship Program was developed. The program introduces the field of educational facilities to a younger generation, while also fostering college student's educational experience. 

     Optional 
    11:10 AM  -  11:55 AM
    Maintenance Planning and Scheduling  (Tony Gutterman)
    Harriet A
    A Google search of maintenance planning and scheduling (P/S) results in hundreds of hits describing
    how to effectively implement, obstacles to avoid and efficiencies to be gained. Most of the literature
    focuses on P/S in a production/manufacturing environment where the impact of the failure or pending
    failure on the bottom line is easily understood. However, in higher education institutions, the “bottom
    line” is difficult to understand as the customers served by Facilities Management often feel their issue is
    an emergency and requires immediate attention, which results in a reactive maintenance environment.
    UMN is attempting to break out of the reactive maintenance culture by implementing P/S but it has
    proven challenging. This presentation will provide a brief background of the University of Minnesota
    and the evolution of the maintenance program reviewing the various attempts at implementing P/S.
    Institutions that have implemented P/S are encouraged to attend to share their insights.
     Optional 
    11:10 AM  -  11:55 AM
    Team Cleaning and Workloading for High Performance  (Sean Fox-Elster)

    workloading and whole lot of training and communication. Within this cycle, making sure that you have
    an effective process and valid workloading are essential to future success. Workers thrive on the clear
    expectations provided by a defined process and workloading. Presenters Sean and Brandon lead an
    organization that claims over 54k gross square feet per FTE while maintaining an APPA level 2-3.

    The Next Generation of Campus Utilities Master Plans: Optimizing Energy, Environmental, and Fiscal  (Mike Luster, PE, LEED AP)
    Harriet A
    Colleges and universities around the country recognize the importance of being a leader to reduce
    global greenhouse gas emissions. Many have signed the American College and University President’s
    Climate Commitment and have set a campus carbon neutrality goal. As carbon neutrality dates
    approach, optimal pathways to campus decarbonization need to be identified and implemented. These
    pathways must balance existing system inertia, energy efficiency and carbon footprint while maintaining
    fiscal responsibility. This presentation will examine current trends and strategies to try to accomplish
    these goals.
     Optional 
    8:10 AM  -  8:55 AM
    Ultraviolet Disinfection in Athletic Environments  (Larry Perez)
    Harriet B
    Athletic activity exposes skin to a wide range of stress factors. Skin trauma disrupts the integrity of all
    tissue layers and only becomes a problem if the organisms get into and under the skin and colonize. The
    health of the athlete is of paramount importance. Concerns include insurance, liability matters, loss of
    athletes, team outbreaks/seasonal losses, decreased recruitment success, decline in public image,
    revenue decreases, and legal costs. UV-C ultraviolet disinfection when used properly will reduce the
    exposure of infectious organisms to student athletes.

    The Impact of Campus Branding and First Impressions  (Brian Netzel)
    Lakes Ballroom C
    The campus visit is one of the most influential recruitment tools for Colleges and Universities. With the high average cost to recruit a student, it is essential that the first impression is intentionally designed to align with an institution’s mission, values, and culture to attract the students that will fit well. Therefore, campus branding should be pervasive on campus, and the Facilities/Physical Plant role is equally as important as the Admissions Office’s efforts. From the moment a prospective student arrives on campus, the institution’s brand should be evident in the details associated with the environment such as lighting, signage, furniture, finishes/materials, receptacles, displays, and environmental graphic design in addition to the overall campus layout, arrival sequence, maintenance, and landscaping. The development of operational and design standards to align with campus branding is a critical component to ensure success.

    Bridging the Gap Between Construction Closeout and Facilities  (Jennifer Cason)
    Nokomis A

    Facilities teams are often frustrated at the handoff when a new building is built, the delays in getting documentation, and having documents they can’t work with (BIM models, CAD files, etc.). How can you break the norms between a traditional paper / CD / thumb drive deliverable and move to a functional tool that facilities can now use? Learn about new trends and best practices for bridging the gaps between construction closeouts and facilities.

    Cleaning, The First Trade  (Brandon Baswel)
    Harriet B
    Let’s celebrate the craft and trade of cleaning! One of the best bangs for your facilities buck is
    cleaning. We appreciate the carpenters that build our edifices as well as the electricians,
    plumbers and HVAC techs that play a vital role in the built environment, but the Custodian is the
    everyday hero that can make everyone else look good, or maybe not so good. The skilled trade
    that can make or break us the fastest is the janitor. Ironically, the janitor is frequently maligned
    in the media and underappreciated in the trades. As facilities managers we have the
    opportunity to elevate the craft of cleaning and celebrate our unsung heroes while reaping the
    benefits of a clean, healthy, well maintained building. This presentation will share a path for
    developing a skilled trade for your cleaning workers.

    Somehow I Manage... Student Employees at the University of Minnesota  (Nick Pnewski)
    Harriet A
    As a national leader in the coordination and operation of classrooms, the Office of Classroom
    Management (OCM) is dedicated to providing the best possible learning experience to our students,

    faculty, staff, and guests. OCM is charged with managing over 400,000 ft2

    at the University of Minnesota
    with just four full-time operational staff. As with most organizations, we are asked to do more with less,
    and what is one of the best ways to do that? Hire student workers! OCM employs students to inspect
    classrooms for facility cleanliness and maintenance issues as well as technology problems.
    In this session, we will discuss how the work of our student employees helps us to catch problems before
    they impact the student learning experience. Learn about how our students fit into the structure of the
    University, what tools they utilize, and how their data allows us to communicate with campus partners.
