The National School Plant Management  Association (NSPMA) was established through the Southern School Plant Management Association (SSPMA).  In the early 1990’s, interest and attendance grew from many  parts of the country for the annual Southern States Conference.  The SSPMA leaders determined the need to form a national alliance for school plant managers.  As a result, the NSPMA was formed in 1995 as a 501(3) C non-profit corporation with bylaws.  Through the last 23 years, the NSPMA has provided leadership, resources, and collaboration opportunities for school plant and facility managers in all 50 states.  The NSPMA Executive Board is committed to providing training and professional development in accordance with industry best practices for its stakeholders across the country. Furthermore, the NSPMA is a professional organization whose purpose is to be a source of information on emerging facility management issues and legislation, provide professional development, organizational benchmarking, and serve as a network for K-12 facility leaders across the country.  The bulleted list below highlights some of the initiates and activities that represent the purpose of the NSMPA.

    • National, Regional, State meetings & collaboration
    • Networking with other professional organizations for professional development opportunities
    • Annual educational conference and training
    • Partnership with national associations and recognizing school divisions for maintenance excellence through our highly recognized Facility Masters Award
    • Thousands of dollars in scholarships given yearly to support the education of youth pursuing careers in operations
    • The establishment of an interactive website that contains links to sources of school facility information to include our Constitution and Bylaws, Executive Board , and applications for awards
    • Association Newsletter highlighting current events and topics and notices of individual state contacts and conferences
    • The establishment of an Operational Management 5 Year Strategic Plan for 2017-2022
