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

Training will be held at St. Catherine University on their St. Paul campus. This is technical training on Extensibility Tools for Admin (INB) pages. We were not able get the minimum registration of 15 seats needed for the Degree Works - Student Educational Planner (SEP) training as of the extended cut-off date so Degree Works SEP training has been cancelled.

St. Kate's has graciously offered to set up a SEED instance of Banner with current software releases, on the devices in the training room, so that we do not have to deal with the variations in instances across our member schools during training, and eliminating the need for any advance installation of the Extensibility Tools to participate in the training.

We will leave registration open until the close of business on January 16, 2017. Pricing will be split among the schools participating and billed to each school direct by UMBUG. Cost of each seat is now capped at $672 per seat for a class size of 15, but if we exceed the 15 minimum count, the cost will go down even lower. Cost does not include travel expenses or meals. Participants will be notified of parking directions after registration closes.
