The University System of Georgia’s annual Facilities Officers Conference serves as a professional development opportunity for USG real estate and facilities officers. Focused on all aspects of facility management, the conference’s educational sessions and activities encourage discussion between institutions and industry partners on best practices and trends in higher education. We hope you will join us for three eventful days of learning and collaboration.
We are hoping to have a draft agenda available around the beginning of October. Please check back for updates. In the interim, those interested in the general format of the conference, please click the link below to last year’s agenda.
So nice we are doing it twice! Brooks Baker returns to the Facilities Officers Conference to provide the second talk from his lecture series.
Brooks Baker retired from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) after more than 34 years in the Facilities Division. As Associate Vice President of Facilities, Brooks had responsibilities for Planning, Design and Construction; all aspects of Plant Operations; Campus Sustainability and Energy Management; and Occupational Health and Safety. UAB has a large Medical Center and Research Facility in addition to Undergraduate and Graduate Schools.
Brooks still manages the cattle ranch where he grew up and works with the Association of Higher Education Facilities Officers (APPA) as Chairman of their Codes and Standards Council. Brooks has done motivational seminars and speeches for widely varied audiences, primarily in Higher Education settings. His “Stay Hungry” topics are applicable in all areas of work and life and hopefully will be not only entertaining, but meaningful.
Registration for our industry partners may be accessed at the conference registration link above. Costs for registration and optional “add-on” items are found at the top of the registration website under “Fees”.
PLEASE NOTE! Our pricing model for vendors has changed to a flat rate per person. Each “industry partner” attendee from a vendor firm will pay the same rate, with the spouse/guest fee being reserved for non-employee guests of the firm.
For industry partners that would like an exhibition booth, an additional fee will apply. The system does allow you to register for one booth for every industry partner attendee from your firm. However, due to limited space, we ask that you only register for one booth per firm.
