Conference Highlights

Special Events

Keynote Speaker

Monday, October 14 :: 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

Colonel Thomas Henry Magness, P.E.

Colonel Magness' last position in the Army was managing a five billion dollar construction project in Afghanistan, so I think he'd understand many of the challenges that School Facilities Directors deal with regularly in overseeing projects and budgets and managing a large staff. He also was a teacher/coach/consultant at the Army's National Training Center for 4 years, where he mentored military leaders.
