While this announcement will likely not come as a surprise, we have decided to host our CollegeSource Annual Conference virtually this year. This user training event is typically held in San Diego each June, and we were especially looking forward to this one as 2021 marks our 50th year in business. Even with hope on the horizon in terms of the pandemic, we know institutions have travel restrictions in place, and there have been cuts to professional development budgets.
In 2020, like many other organizations, we pivoted as quickly as possible and moved our event online. It was no small feat but quite successful; nearly 1300 people registered to attend, many for the first time because it was online and free of charge. We hope to build on that experience and the feedback we received to deliver another excellent training experience for our user community. We have invested in a new platform that we hope will enhance the experience and provide even more networking opportunities.
There are numerous reasons we host this event. We want to strengthen our relationships with our customers, provide opportunities for users to connect in a meaningful way, and provide quality sessions that help our customers build the knowledge and skills needed to be successful with our software. Regardless of how we deliver the content, our goals remain the same.
We plan to make this event free, with additional opportunities for in-depth training for a small fee. These pre-conference sessions, or mini-workshops, are longer than the average session and dive deep into specific topics. If you would like to suggest/request a specific topic, we would love to hear from you.
Details, including the schedule and how to register, will be released in the coming weeks. If you have any conference-related questions and suggestions, please email email@example.com.
