North Carolina Association of Community College Facility Operations

Message from the President

I want to first take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in making the 2019 Fall Conference the success it was!  Many of you stepped up to help with the unexpected transitions in our Executive Committee and I thank you for your service. I continue to be humbled and grateful to the people who dedicate their time and efforts to this Organization and this Conference – the state and district officers, the committee members, and the volunteers (which often includes the families of the members!) to make this a great experience for everyone.   For the participating Members and Vendors, thank you for your attendance, and for afterwards for your feedback in the online surveys; these help us strive to improve the experience each year.

As a reminder, the three Colleges from each District selected by random drawing for the 2019 Annual scholarship should have received their award notification letters and information on filling for the scholarship award.   Congratulations to Isothermal CC, Randolph CC, and Beaufort County CC on receiving the scholarship awards. 

As we start our Spring Semesters, I want to remind everyone that each of the Districts will be holding their mid-year meetings, and I encourage you to attend if possible.  The professional development, the tours, and fellowship are invaluable in helping each of us at our Colleges, and the meetings are the foundation for the discussions at the Fall Conference.

I encourage everyone to start making plans to attend the 2020 ACCFO Fall Conference in Asheville this October 2020.  The professional development opportunities provided to all members are informative and helpful and we will look forward to seeing you there. 

I encourage each of you to become involved and participate in ACCFO.  As members, we all have the capability to provide support and guidance to each other to help make our facilities the best they can be for our students, faculty and staff!

Please reach out to me if I can ever provide any assistance.
