The Nuts & Bolts
of Facilities Supervision
"I was a participant in the APPA Supervisor's Toolkit seminar in Regina last week and I just wanted to let you know that I found it to be very interesting, and that there was definitely some tools that I will be adding to my tool box."
"Specifically the Mission, Vision and Goal the university of Alberta has its own for the institution, but I'm going to create one for my own team. So in summation thanks for the knowledge sharing and with any luck we will see you at another seminar or APPA conference in the future."
