School Facilities Management Virtual Showcase
Justification Toolkit

The SFMI Virtual Vendor Showcase is free to DOF and Affilitate Members. We understand that some districts are experiencing severe financial problems which leave them short-handed. This means that regardless of the merits of distance learning and continuing education, you may need to justify the time invested in training.

Consider:

  • Focusing on what you will specifically bring back to your district as return for the investment of your time.
  • Offering to prepare and deliver a short presentation and Q&A to your business official, superintendent and/or school board to share what you learned.
  • Sharing speaker handouts with your colleagues. As an attendee, you have unlimited access to materials posted by speakers.
  • If you are working to obtain or maintain your CDF designation, remind your supervisor that this is a great way to earn credits.
  • Preparing a plan that shows who will cover for you while you are attending the conference.
