Thanks to Ball State University for hosting

an awesome conference for

ACUBSS 40th year Anniversary

on November 3-5, 2021


We hope you can join us next Fall

at the University of North Texas - Denton!

It's about 45 miles from Dallas/Fort Worth.





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.
