Attendee "Make the Case" Resources

Join Us for the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference

Connect with the best thinkers in higher education technology at the 2023 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference. This year, the annual conference will be held in-person in Chicago, IL October 9–12 and online October 18–19. 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 technology landscape. The conference provides it in spades with numerous breakout sessions as well as opportunities for interactive learning with numerous 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).
