UMBUG XXV - Fall Conference updates

Thanks again to our hosts at the University of St. Thomas, for making the Fall Conference a success. Prior to the conference, we went back through the conference listings and discovered that this was the 25th UMBUG conference we have held, not counting the training and Ellucian Live meetings. We were pleased to welcome 140 participants including several who joined remotely for one of the web-ex presentations. Based on the registration information, we also had one of the highest percentages of first time attenders at an UMBUG conference, that was 20%, so probably a sign of retirements, and other turnover situations and hopefully a sign of the continued value of UMBUG to our members. You can find additional information and see photos from the conference on the News page and find presentations on the Member Resources page.

St. Catherine University to host Winter Training January 24 - 26, 2017

University of St. Catherine

Winter Training events provide UMBUG members an opportunity to gain in depth training on Banner and related functionality and tools with the benefit of other UMBUG members with similar experience present. By pooling our resources, we are able to offer training on a very competitive basis.

The Planning Team is currently working on finalizing topics for two concurrent training tracks in January.

Watch this space and UMBUG e-mail communications for further updates at these are finalized.
