Join us in welcoming Lesa Lawson, the Director of Academic Records at Baylor University, and Aleta Carlberg, Associate Director of Records/Registration at University of Illinois Springfield, as the new members of the CollegeSource Client Advisory Board (or “CAB”)! We believe Lesa and Aleta will be a strong voice for the user community over the next two years and we, the staff of CollegeSource, look forward to working with them. Please take the opportunity to introduce yourselves to our new CAB members at this year’s conference or perhaps by email. The Client Advisory Board contact information can be found in the Support Center.
CAB members have an important job. They provide a user-perspective on CollegeSource goals and software, filter and organize feedback, help us solicit user presentations for the conference, and generally serve as the users’ advocate.
We had a number of qualified, interested individuals who had a lot of great reasons for wanting to participate in the CAB. This, coupled with our interest in obtaining a diversity of perspectives (small vs. big school, public vs. private, voices for each product, etc.) made the choice very difficult for us and for the current CAB members, whom we consulted with throughout the process.
If you are interested in joining the CAB, watch this newsletter. CAB members serve a two-year term. We stagger the terms so that a position or two that comes open each year.
The Call for Proposals has been extended for the CollegeSource 2013 User Conference & Training Workshop, June 17-20, 2013 at the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, SC. All proposals must be submitted no later than Friday, March 1, 2013.
This is a great opportunity to share your insights and experiences with your colleagues. We’ve already received some great presentation proposals that we are looking forward to hearing. Users like you will be presenting topics such as: using TES® and u.select® to match and award military credit, perspectives and progress of u.direct® implementation, encoding creative strategies for student tracking and streamlining the graduation clearance process, and how technology tools can complement organizational design in shaping enrollment goals and contribute to student success.
