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 is more important than ever. This year, the annual conference will be held in-person in Denver, CO October 25–28 and online November 2–3. 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 higher education IT landscape. The conference provides it in spades with numerous breakout sessions as well as opportunities for interactive learning with several Preconference Workshops. View the conference agenda (coming soon!) 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 annual conference will bring together our diverse and innovative community to share their knowledge and expertise with one another, online or in-person.

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