Webinar: Meetings, Conferences, and Events Planning 101
August 8 | 2:00pm ET

Perhaps you have been asked to lead the planning and execution of a campus based professional association conference or maybe you are newly overseeing an established team of conference and event managers in your auxiliary services unit. In either situation, you may be finding yourself curious about where to begin when it comes to what it takes to plan a successful meeting, conference or event.

This webinar will provide an overview of the critical steps in planning and executing an event from beginning to end, or soup to nuts as you may have heard a planner say casually when referring to their craft. Using a case study approach examining three common scenarios – a multiple day campus based conference, a presidential visit to campus and a board of directors meeting or retreat – attendees will gain an understanding of the full breadth of details that are behind managing meetings, conferences and events successfully. From budgeting, emergency planning, and post event assessment to catering, accommodations and transportation coordination – this session will endeavor to provide you with a roadmap for future success in planning meetings, conferences and events in a collegiate environment.

With the unique combination of applying principles of experience design and clinical nutrition they’ve created The Circuit, to keep athletes fueled, equipped and connected in a way that drives performance of the athlete, the team and the school! Join Experience Designer Kristi Theisen and Sports Nutritionist Leslie Bonci to explore how, with insight on your athlete, you can move from an experience that causes stress for your student athletes to one that powers athletic performance.

Webinar: Creating an Identity Roadmap for your Campus
September 19 | 2:00pm ET

The Campus Identity Roadmap…What is it, Why do we need it and How do we create one. Advanced campus identity technologies are becoming available at an unprecedented speed. New credential types including mobile, biometrics, contactless credentials, and cloud-based identity solutions can provide increased safety and enhanced student engagement across your campus. Universities are complex ecosystems comprised of both independent and integrated systems that provide everyday campus services. These systems use many types of identifiers, along with a variety of back-end systems that manage them. It’s important that these technologies and business practices align to provide an efficient delivery of services. The ability to unify and integrate existing campus services and successfully fold in emerging technologies is key to successfully enhancing services and safety. Todd Brooks (Director of Product Management) and Danny Smith (Executive Vice President) of ColorID, LLC will summarize all the important aspects of the Campus Identity Roadmap for an institution and the steps and considerations needed to consider.
