The School Facility Managers' Academy is the premier educational program for New York State school facilities directors. 

Twice a year we offer our Managers' Track and alternate between our Personnel Management and Security TracksOnly 30 participants may attend each track.

Tuition includes materials, lunches and refreshment breaks on both days, and hotel accommodations near the host location. Dinner at the hotel is included on the first evening. A limited number of hotel rooms are available the evening prior to the first day of instruction for an additional fee.

Our next Academy will take place December 6-7, 2023 at Capital Region BOCES in Albany.
