2024 Facilities Conference

2024 Facilities Conference

Sunday, February 4, 2024 to Tuesday, February 6, 2024

Event Details


The 2024 Facilities Conference is designed for independent school facilities directors and the administrators they work with. The event will be packed with informative sessions as well as plenty of opportunities to collaborate with your peers and learn from their experiences.

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.


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