Jack Colby Continues Stellar Legacy of APPA Fellows
Thaler-Carter, Ruth E.
Facilities Manager, v27 n5 p20-22 Sep-Oct 2011
This article profiles 2011 APPA Fellow Jack K. Colby, assistant vice chancellor for facilities operations at North Carolina State University. Colby has a history of nonstop service to his profession and to APPA that makes that ever-active, never-stop rabbit look like a piker. Like previous APPA Fellows, Colby could easily rest on his laurels of service to the association and profession, but instead continues to give generously of his skill and intellect to both. Colby's research project for his APPA Fellow designation involved the development and implementation of the annual APPA Thought Leaders Series. In his 34 years as an APPA member, Colby has held several key leadership positions in APPA, the most notable being that of President in 2005-06. He also served in two other major elected officer roles: as Vice President for Professional Affairs and chair of the Awards & Recognition Committee; and APPA Secretary-Treasurer and chair of the Membership Committee, which is unprecedented. He graduated from the Institute for Facilities Management in 1996 and the Leadership Academy in 2006.
