Updates from the UMBUG Summer Conference

Our thanks to the team at The College of St. Benedict & St. John's University for hosting the Summer Conference. We welcomed about 100 participants on site and about another 20 for two sessions via live stream. As we have done at least once previously, we invited a speaker in from another school outside our users' group, this time from the University of New Mexico, to share their experiences on duplicate record management. You can find pictures and updates on the Summer Conference on the News page and the presentations can be accessed using your UMBUG user ID and password on the Member Resources page.

University of St. Thomas hosts Fall Conference October 27 & 28, 2016

University of St. Thomas

We look forward to welcoming you to the Fall Conference, at the downtown Minneapolis campus of the University of St. Thomas. Our thanks to the team at St. Thomas for hosting. This will be our first UMBUG conference on the Minneapolis campus. There are parking ramps available with skyway access to the campus. However parking costs will be the responsibility of those attending, so we really are encouraging our members to "go green" and consider using the light rail or bus transportation to the campus.

The Planning Team is working on identifying concurrent sessions and workshops for the Fall Conference. Ellucian will be sponsoring the Fall Conference and will be providing several sessions. The new format where the first day is a full day and the second day is a half day proved very popular when we tried that at the Summer Conference and we will use that same format for Fall with slight adjustments.

Watch this space for further updates.
