Alternative project delivery, BIM, IPD, Lean, sustainability.  These and other progressive tools are great, but will the fabulous building or renovation you’ve just created still be meeting expectations and needs in 10 years?  Will it hold up, and can it be cost-effectively operated and maintained?  Is it truly energy efficient, or was LEED certification just a box to check and a plaque to hang?  The President-elect of APPA will challenge you to consider these and other questions from the perspective of someone who’s been on both sides of the house.
