2020 Facilities Conference

2020 Facilities Conference

Sunday, January 26, 2020 to Tuesday, January 28, 2020

Event Details


The 2020 MISBO Facilities Conference is designed for independent school facilities directors and the administrators they work with. In addition to sessions offered by the conference faculty - independent school professionals and your peers - a select number of industry experts will also provide information and resources. The event will be packed with informative sessions as well as plenty of opportunities to collaborate with your peers. 

Attendees will leave with valuable information to help them perform the daily tasks critical to their school's smooth and successful operation, but more importantly each person will leave with a new group of friends and colleagues they can call upon when they need guidance. This unique event provides time for significant learning and important networking, and we encourage schools to send their facilities team and the key administrative positions they work with to this event.

Session Topics Include:

  • Energy Management
  • Athletic Facilities Safety
  • Building Controls and Security
  • Capital Replacement
  • Risk Management... and more!


  • Facilities/Operations Directors
  • Facilities Managers
  • Facilities Support Staff
  • Business Officers
  • Other administrators who manage/work with facilities departments
