With the easing of the pandemic restrictions on travel and gatherings, Aegis Environmental is happy to be a part of several conferences in March and April. There is a renewed energy and appreciation for meeting in person to reconnect with partners, share learnings, and identify new opportunities. 

The South Carolina Association of Physical Plant Administrators (SCAPPA) participated in the South Carolina Tri Association conference in a chilly Myrtle Beach in mid-March. Aegis was a presenter and exhibitor at the gathering of those responsible for facility operations at education facilities across the state. The Aegis presentation topic focused on the value of integrating permitting considerations early in the design process. This practice can maximize the life-cycle cost of a project and avoid major missteps. The presentation closed with the reminder that “It costs $1 to fix something during design, $10 to fix it during construction, and $100 to fix it in operation.” 

The Virginia Association of Physical Plant Administrators (VAPPA) gathers at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg at the end of March. Aegis will be an attendee at this conference focused on Virginia higher education facilities. Aegis is excited for the opportunity to reconvene with contacts from its history of work with colleges across the Commonwealth and to learn more about the upcoming challenges and opportunities in this space.

 The Carolinas Air Pollution Control Association (CAPCA) reconvenes at the historic Grove Park Inn in Asheville in early April. Aegis will be attending and exhibiting at this forum. This meeting of environmental professionals has been a great learning resource in the past. Members of the Aegis Greenville, SC office are looking forward to returning to this event. 


Aegis looks forward to more opportunities throughout 2022 to reconvene with new and existing partners. These events present opportunities to deepen learnings and identify future trends across the environmental space.
