2022 Facilities Management Conference ATTENDEE


Join your colleagues from across Wisconsin to learn about trends and innovations in school operations designed specifically for school facility, operations and maintenance and school business professionals! This one-and-one-half-day educational conference features 24 breakout sessions, including both core and continuing education courses for the WASBO Facilities Certification Program. We will also recognize our Custodian/Maintenance Professionals of the Year and kick off with an energizing keynote. Don't forget to take advantage of the time to meet with 100+ vendors in the Exhibit Hall to get the information you need to make informed decisions.

Your keynote speaker, Wisconsin's own Mark Tauscher!

Tauscher grew up on a farm in Central Wisconsin, graduating from Auburndale High School. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree in History and Master's degree in Educational Administration from University of Wisconsin-Madison. He started his collegiate football career as a walk on at Wisconsin and finished with Big Ten and Rose Bowl Championships in 1998 and 1999. In 2000, Mark was drafted by the Green Bay Packers and became the starting right tackle in his rookie year. His 11-year career included 132 starts with the Packers and a championship in Super Bowl XLV. Mark received a variety of accolades during his NFL career including All-Rookie Honors, the Lee Remmel Professional Achievement Award, the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, and the Ed Block Courage Award. In 2018 Mark received the prestigious honor of induction into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame. Currently, Mark hosts ESPN Wisconsin’s Wilde and Tausch daily radio show.
