Updates from the 2019 Fall Conference

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.

Shared Training Plans Underway

Shared Training Plans Underway

As part of the discussions from the Steering Team meeting at the Fall Conference, we are looking at plans for the next round(s) of Shared Training. Two options are under consideration.

The first option would be to follow our traditional pattern for Winter Training with three days of training as follows: two days on Course Program of Study and one day on Degree Works Scribing/CAPP.

A second option, also under consideration is for a day of training just before or after the Fall Conference in 2020. The topics discussed for this training would be Action Item Processing and Page Builder.

Watch your e-mail updates and this site for further information.

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:
–Listservs – functional area listservs that allow you to continue communication year round with your colleagues from the comfort of your email inbox
–Systems Matrix – an updated, searchable resource
–Membership roster – a new, searchable resource
–Shared Documents Library – folders to leverage the sharing of “tips and tricks” or other resources
