As president and CEO of Fanning Howey, a leading architectural engineering firm specializing in educational facility design, Dan Mader has over 30 years of experience in educational facility planning and design. Dan has been an active member of CEFPI for 17 years and has served as the Midwest – Great Lakes region president, past president and treasurer as well as governor for Area 5. He has been a part of the International strategic planning team, a member of the panel for the selection of CEFPI Planner of the Year, and has served on the nominating committee for international president.
