Phillip MelnickWelcome to Keystone Chapter of APPA

I am honored to serve as KAPPA’s President.  Participation and involvement are the keys to the success of our organization and I want to thank our members, their institutions, our business partners, and sponsors for their engagement and support.  Since 1991, KAPPA has been the leading advocate for professional development and education for members in the higher education facilities management profession in Pennsylvania.  Our mission is to connect our members, providing networking and educational opportunities as a platform to learn, grow, and succeed. 

Chart Your Course – Learn, Grow, Succeed is the motto of the 2019 ERAPPA Annual Meeting.  KAPPA is proud to be hosting ERAPPA 2019, in Erie, Pennsylvania, September 29 through October 2, 2019.   This premier facilities management conference is something you don’t want to miss.  I hope to see you there. 

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”— Chinese Proverb

I encourage all our members to advantage of what KAPPA and ERAPPA offer.  You get out of it what you put into it, so be involved.  I look forward to your future participation.  Please reach out to me at
if I can assist you in any way or if you have anything you would like to share with me.
