4th Annual MSAPPA Conference
February 21- 22, 2024
Golden Nugget, Biloxi, Mississippi
The conference will be held at The Golden Nugget Biloxi to identify and discuss the most current and pressing challenges facing educational facilities and determine the best paths forward to address them. MSAPPA 2023 had over 160 participants from throughout our great state and we expect MSAPPA 2024 to have even greater attendance.
This two-day conference will consist of numerous educational opportunities as well as an Exposition Hall where our Business Partners will share the newest technologies and methods for addressing the issues facing educational facilities.
Make plans to join us in Biloxi and network with your fellow educational facilities professionals!
