New York State School Facilities Association Expo

9/30/18: Michael Shilale Architects, LLP had the pleasure to attend the New York State School Facilities Association (NYSSFA) Conference and Expo in Saratoga Springs recently.    We loved sharing some of our successful and creative Green Ideas with the dozens of School Directors of Facilities who stopped by our booth.

This year was special for us as our longtime client and friend Paul Rooney was elevated to President of the Association. Congradulations to Paul on this well-deserved honor recognizing his expertise and years of contribution to making public schools safer, healthier and better places for students, teachers, and staff.

The work of the Public-School Districts and their leaders is beyond important and this expo gives all those who attend a chance to talk and learn from the various attendees and speakers. Emphasizing their title, “The Power of Communication”, this expo “will build an effective network with Director of Facilities, their staff, our business partners, industry experts, and NYSED officials.”

Wishing to continue this legacy of communication and good repour with all those attending, Michael Shilale Architects held their annual Library Grant prize for one lucky school district.
