Washington State Chapter of APPA is Launched!!

APPA is pleased to announce the launch of the Washington State APPA Chapter (WAPPA) on December 12, 2012.  Formation of the WAPPA chapter was announced in conjunction with a recent APPA Drive-In held at the University of Washington, Bothell.  The APPA Drive-In program was made possible through the support of Business Partner sponsors ESC Automation and McKinstry.


Forty-eight Educational Professionals from over more than 20 APPA member institutions, business partners, and affiliates attended the Workshop.  Presentations on energy management dashboards and the APPA Facilities Performance Indicators program were included in the workshop program and were presented by Eric Shimmin (ESC Automation) and Duane Hickling (Hickling & Associates).


“We are thrilled to see WAPPA become a reality,” said PCAPPA Past President Tony Guerrero, who  serves as the assistant vice chancellor for facilities services at the University of Washington/Bothell.  “Since we held our first APPA Drive In back in 2010 at Seattle University, there has been a strong desire to have regular meetings for professional development and networking opportunities.”


Founding members of the new WAPPA Chapter are:

  • Tony Guerrero | University of Washington, Bothell
  • Chuck Davis | Seattle Central Community College
  • Steve Szablya | Seattle University
  • Melinda Nelson | ESC Automation / Delta Controls


“We appreciate all the help received from APPA, and also the support and advice of JB Messer, a founder of the Oklahoma State Chapter and former CAPPA president,” said Melinda Nelson, PCAPPA’s business partner liaison.
