Attendee "Make the Case" Resources

Join Us for the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference

These are uncommon times, and we need uncommon thinking to confront the challenges of higher education IT. This is why the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference Online is more important than ever. This year, the annual conference will be 100% virtual over three days, October 27-29. Do you need a supervisor's approval to register?

We have some tips on how to convince them to provide the financial support to attend.

Reasons you should register:

  • Professional Learning. You need the most up-to-date information and strategies to deal with the "new normal" higher education finds itself in. The conference provides it in spades with 250+ breakout sessions and 175+ on-demand sessions, as well as opportunities for interactive learning with severalLearning Labs and Experience Summits. View the conference program and make a list of the sessions that would be beneficial to your professional growth and your organization.
  • Networking. You will have multiple ways to engage, learn, and connect with colleagues from around the world. The virtual annual conference will bring together our diverse and innovative community to share their knowledge and expertise with one another.
  • Budget-Friendly. The conference is 100% virtual this year, so there are no prohibitive accommodation and travel expenses...just register online and you're ready to go. Your investment also allows access to sessions until January 31, 2021!

If you need help getting started, use our email template to seek your supervisor's approval (feel free to edit as you deem appropriate).

EDUCAUSE is dedicated to setting a new standard for virtual conferences this year...we hope you will be with us!
