Conference information & registration

Conference information & registration

Welcome to the first UMBUG virtual conference. We had planned to be near the shores of Lake Superior at the College of St. Scholastica, where the very first UMBUG conference was held in 2007. However, as we all know many things have changed this year. What has not changed is the commitment of our members and business partners to collaboration and knowledge sharing. There are several sessions on ways to improve your institution’s use of Banner, related tools, and improving process effectiveness at many levels. There are also several presentations from members regarding the lessons learned and new tools and approaches to deal with the adapting to life in the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference also features greatly expanded numbers of sessions on Advancement topics – all of these are related to business process improvements, and are not software specific. We also continue our collaboration with the Salesforce & Slate users’ groups in the region that many member institutions use in concert with Banner – watch for their sessions as well.

Member accounts

UMBUG works very hard to put into operation member feedback regarding our website. We have focused on access to resources, networking, collaboration and enhanced services. Remember that any staff member from a member institution is eligible to create a personal UMBUG user account and gain access to all of the great resources.

Those resources include:
1. Membership roster – a searchable resource of colleagues
2. Systems Matrix – an updated, searchable inventory of applications and modules of Ellucian and a variety of third party software systems in use at member schools
3. Listservs – members can sign up for various functional and technical mailing lists for networking year round with your colleagues from the comfort of your email inbox
4. Materials - members have access to past conference and shared training materials
Shared Documents Library – folders to leverage the sharing of “tips and tricks” or other resources between members

Updates from the 2019 Fall Conference

Our thanks to all who made the Fall Conference a success, especially our hosts at St. Norbert College, vendor sponsors, partnering organizations, all those who lead and attended sessions both on-site and remotely. We were also pleased to welcome prospective members from two visiting Wisconsin Banner schools. In all about 130 participants.

The UMBUG web site has been updated with many of the presentations from the 30 plus sessions. To access these, go the Member Resources page, click on Conference Resources, and search by category such as Financial Aid or follow the instructions to search by date for either 10-03-2019 or 10-04-2019.

You will need to establish an UMBUG account first to access these. That can also be done on the Member Resources tab using your school e-mail as the user ID and by creating a password.
