RMA supports the professional development of the employees of its member institutions. The professional development of personnel in the field of facilities (operations, maintenance, design, construction, etc.) is essential to ensure that the employee can continue to meet the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities available in providing facility services to the institution. RMA believes this professional development can be achieved through a wide variety of activities, two of which are the Leadership Academy and the Institute for Facilities Management delivered at APPAU twice yearly as per the following schedule: http://www.appa.org/training/trainingcalendar.cfm
