Welcome to Rocky Mountain APPA

RMA promotes the common interests of planning, maintenance and operation of facilities within the region's educational institutions, supports and supplements the activities of APPA, and fosters a professional spirit among those engaged in this work.

Rocky Mountain APPA includes the states of Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and the Canadian Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories.

Your RMA board will be filling three key positions this year. This is your opportunity to influence and lead RMA as we work to serve our members and support APPA's strategic plan.

We're looking for someone with financial skills and eye for detail to work with our current Treasurer to prepare for a smooth transition into the role.

We also need someone with the ability to work with a large data base as our Membership Coordinator.

If you have an artistic flair and the ability to manage a web page, then the Communications Coordinator role might be a good fit for you.

These board appointments will be three year terms.

I invite you to have a look at the RMA Bylaws for additional detail or contact any of the Board members.

To be considered for theses positions, please send me a brief note ( by June 12, 2015 and discuss how your unique skills would make you the ideal candidate.

The successful candidates will be installed during the RMA annual conference at Big Sky, Montana.
