Home News J+J Flooring partners with APPA to sponsor education workshop

Dalton — J+J Flooring Group has recently joined with APPA, a leading professional association of education facility managers, to present an APPA Facilities Drive-In workshop.

The event is scheduled to take place April 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Brown Lupton University Union on the campus of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas. It includes a continental breakfast and lunch and is free to educational facility professionals. Attendees will earn .4 CEUs, four PDH units and four LUs.

As a sponsoring partner, J+J Flooring Group has selected a content focus that will have strategic application to both financial outcomes and student satisfaction in higher education facilities. Presentations will address topics including:

  • The intersection between branding and higher education and the implications on the built environment;
  • How facilities professionals of learning and cultural institutions can translate institutional identity into a successful visual communications program;
  • How campus facilities can support and enhance the overall branding goals of the institution;
  • The emergence of evidence-based design in learning environments and how these principles can be successfully applied to the floor covering evaluation and selection process.

Experienced presenters and subject matter experts have been carefully selected to serve as session leaders for the event and include Brian Brindisi, Gensler design director of brand design; Kimberly Hickson, FAIA, LEED AP, Gensler Firmwide education and culture leader; and Keith Gray, J+J Flooring group director of product innovation.

The complimentary workshop is the first in a series to be held throughout the United States in 2014. It is geared toward facility directors, business officers, managers, supervisors and technical personnel from colleges, universities, K-12 public school and private academies, museums and libraries.
