A Business Partner shall be a non-voting individual, organization, manufacturer or supplier of goods and services operating for profit and ascribing to the policies and purposes of NJAPPA and subject to approval by the Board of Directors.
Benefits of membership as a Business Partner include keeping current with interests, innovations and trends that impact facilities administrators in higher education.
Additionally, you have the opportunity to network with peers as well as potential clients.
There are also numerous professional development opportunities that occur throughout the year and many of these programs provide for continuing education CEU’s (i.e. for architects and engineers). Also, these programs are held at a variety of New Jersey College and University locations so you have the opportunity to visit these campuses and tour some of their latest completed buildings. Another benefit is participation in “call for papers” events, which give you and your company added exposure, should you be selected to present.
Business Partners must have an NJAPPA member College or University sponsor in order to be considered for membership. There are categories of company type that have been developed and there is a maximum of five business partners in each category (i.e. architect). Finally, a ratio of business partners to institutional members is also observed.
Business Partner applications are reviewed at each NJAPPA Board meeting and the Board votes on adding new members.
Traditionally, the Chapter meets three times a year, during Fall, Winter and Spring. Additionally, an Annual Spring Conference takes place.
