Please save the date for the annual PABUG fall conference which will be held on Monday, November 21, 2016 – Tuesday, November 22, 2016 at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg (Hershey Area) in Grantville, PA.  We will also be having a Sunday (November 20, 2016) evening Technical BOF.

This year marks the 17th annual fall conference for our beloved PABUG organization, and I hope you can join us this year!  Based on feedback from our survey last year, the single most important benefit of attending the annual conference is the ability to network with your peers and collaborate with one another about various issues facing Higher Education today.  During this event you can learn so much just by having conversation with those who have like interests, let alone from the relevant session content. It is worth your time to be present and share!

Therefore, please help us put on a good show this year by volunteering your talents and presenting to your peers.  We cannot do this without your involvement, so I’m encouraging you to get involved.  One of the best investments for reaching your professional goals is to spend time sharing and learning with colleagues from different institutions.  So take that leap, and agree to present this year!  As an added incentive, all presenters will receive a parting gift from the PABUG organization.

Please consider presenting, co-presenting, paneling, or submitting an interest or an idea to your respective area’s Track Leaders. You may reply to this message or contact any of our Track Leaders individually: http://pabug.org/contact-us/.

Thank you!

Michael D. White
