The FEFPA Summer Conference was held at the Boca Raton Resort and Club on July 9th-12th. Throughout the conference the panelists were engaged in discussions which challenged traditional thinking in public education. There were sessions on legal issues, new trends, project delivery, technical aspects of facilities planning and more.
The Florida Educational Facilities Planners Association (FEFPA) was started in the early 1960’s as a cooperative effort between a small group of school districts’ facilities planners and the Department of Education, Office of Educational Facilities (OEF). When the community colleges came into being, those planners began to participate and recently, along with university planners, practicing architects, engineers, product manufacturers, and vendors have been encouraged to participate and become members and associate members.
