Fall Educational Program Follow-Up



On October 17, the MD/DC APPA Chapter hosted its Fall Educational Program at Towson University.  Many thanks to all those who attended, to our presenters and to our sponsors, Gale Associates, Inc., Structural Group, and Whiting-Turner.

Two educational sessions were presented:

Fires, Floods and Mold, Oh My!!!   Presented by:  Archie M. Barrett Jr., President/Compliance Environmental International (CEI), Inc.; Bob Harrison, Senior Account Executive/Unlimited Restoration, Inc.; and Shari Solomon, Esq., Director of Training/CEI

Session description:  Unexpected disasters are an unfortunate reality for all Universities and Colleges. Fires, floods/water damage, and mold growth are all tragedies that can strike any size facility. When such disasters occur, what is your strategy, are you prepared?

The Four Styles of Communication at Work: Which one is yours? Presented by:  Celina Ryan, Facilities Training Coordinator/Facilities & Human Resources, American University

Session description:  Assertive, Aggressive, Passive and Passive Aggressive. These are the four basic styles of communication. While at work, do you ever wonder how you are perceived?  Do you know which style you lean towards? This interactive session focused on the definitions of each, what the differences are, the appropriate contexts for each style, and intentions behind action.
