Acubss -Message from the President

We are in the midst of planning the  Fall 2021 Conference. Place and Dates TBD!



It's with a sad heart that we make the announcement that Mel Schriefer, the Founder of ACUBSS passed away in May this year.

Mel enjoyed a 36-year career working for the University of Illinois. He retired as the superintendent of Building Services in 1993. During his career, he oversaw hundreds of employees. One of his proudest career achievements was founding the Association of College and University Building Service Supervisors (ACUBSS), an organization dedicated to advancing the highest standards of professional management, modern methods and educational programs in the institutional custodial care industry. Today, ACUBSS has membership across the nation and includes members from colleges, universities, public schools, hospitals and various other vendors.

ACUBSS is an organization for supervisors and those involved in the Building Services field…
