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.

Fall Conference plans in progress

We are still working on finalizing the location for the Fall Conference as of the day this "went to press." The plan is to have the Fall Conference in the Twin Cities. Users' groups of our size are allowed to have up to three Ellucian consultants on hand to speak at one users' group conference per year. We are planning to follow through on that option as soon as we have the conference location confirmed. One of our commonly held, third party vendors, has already expressed an interest in sponsoring the Fall Conference.
