President’s Message

The NSPMA Conference is a stellar way for vendors to connect with K-12 school systems nationwide, and find ways to assist in the varying and numerous projects that K-12 Facility Directors encounter on a daily basis.

We look forward to welcoming our members and vendors to Nashville, Tennessee, the capital of country music in 2024.  It is a special time to build lifelong relationships, and network with NSPMA members nationwide, while attending training and educational sessions that NSPMA has developed to assist in your certified training.  Early registration will be coming soon to our website for our upcoming Joint Conference with Tennessee School Plant Management Association in Nashville, February 4-7, 2024.
