The Uniting Across Campuses Advising Conference is a week away. The conference committee has been working hard and we are excited about all that the conference has to offer this year. I have a few last minute details to share with you, so please read the email below.
Specific Dietary Needs (Requests needed by Feb. 19th)
If you have any specific food needs (vegan, gluten free), please fill out the form below so that we can let the Ramada know. This is a time sensitive survey as we need to let them know by the end of the day on February 19th. The breakfast, lunch & snacks at the conference are similar to those available last year. Vegetarian options such as salad and ziti will be available in the buffet. You can access the survey (Click here)
Registration / Transferring Registration / Conference Sessions
If you haven’t registered or know of anyone who hasn’t registered, yet, please register soon. If for some reason you can no longer make it to the conference, you can transfer your registration to someone else by contacting Kate Doran at firstname.lastname@example.org (include the new person’s name, title, and institution. A list of the conference sessions is also located on the main conference page (Click Here).
Optional Networking Sessions (2nd survey)
We are hosting two optional networking discussions during lunch this year. Based on your feedback we have selected two topics: First Year Retention & Student Advocacy / Promoting Self Reliance. To prepare for the networking sessions we have created a brief survey to solicit questions and comments about the topics to help guide the discussions. To access the survey (Click Here).
Drawing / Giveaways
We will be holding a drawing for any items donated to the conference after the last session concludes. If your office or institution has any items you wish to donate for giveaways, please feel free to bring them to the conference or give them to a committee member.
Best wishes and we look forward to seeing you at the conference.
