"I should have joined CEFPI years earlier than I did! I have found it to be the 'go to' organization when it comes to providing the latest information and research from experts and practitioners around the world on what the best learning environments are for students to learn and for teachers to teach in."

   ~RON FANNING, AIA, P. Eng, REFP; CEFPI President 2003; Chairman of the Board, Fanning Howey

"CEFPI has provided me with opportunities and invaluable resources that I could find nowhere else. I am proud to belong to and participate in an organization whose primary mission is to help people create outstanding learning environments for kids."

"CEFPI is the single most comprehensive association for the education community. All disciplines involved in the educational built environment are represented within CEFPI and each voice is equally respected. As a long-standing member we have benefited enormously from the professional research, conferences and camaraderie that is shared because of CEFPI. The Council is tireless in its efforts to remain on the leading edge of information and technology associated within the educational community and specifically with facility planning.
