ACUA’s Annual Conferences follow much the same format as they did when the association was first formed; with days spent in educational sessions and evenings devoted to networking opportunities disguised as social functions! Nationally known keynote speakers provide valuable information and inspiration as a kickoff to each day. Attendees are then encouraged to attend different tracks on a variety of topics rather than a set track for the entire time of the conference. Tracks typically cover such topics as Emerging Issues, Professional Development, Research & Compliance, Information Technology, Enterprise Risk Management, Fraud & Investigations and Specialized Knowledge & Roundtables. Networking opportunities abound from the Opening Reception in the Exhibit Hall on Sunday night, daily breakfasts, two luncheons, and two dinner events including the annual themed dinner/dance that is a unique ACUA experience that you won’t want to miss. The combination of camaraderie and focus on the latest issues related to internal auditing in higher education continue to serve as the foundation for the ACUA Annual Conference.

This event provides professional development specifically for higher education communications and collaboration technology leaders. The two educational tracks that will be covered include 1) Turning ICT Services and Support into a Strategic Asset and 2) All Things Wireless, Mobile and Cloud.
Track 1: Turning ICT Services and Support into a Strategic Asset
ICT organizations continually evaluate, deploy, and support new services to meet campus needs. A key success factor in this process is an effective service and support organization that can help users maximize the value of both new and old services. This track will explore what tools, training, processes, and back-end support ICT support organizations need to provide fabulous service to our campus constituency, as well as effective organizational models for providing this needed support.
Track 2: All Things Wireless, Mobile and Cloud
The ability to access any piece of information from anywhere is today’s most disruptive technology driver affecting higher education. This track will explore how our institutions can use cloud and network services, mobile and wireless devices, and personalized technology to save money, improve learning, and expand research capabilities quickly and cost effectively, as well as how we are adapting our ICT organizations to support services we didn’t build, on devices we haven’t bought or specified, for users that are doing more with technology at every turn.
This event also includes an exhibit hall full of IT and telecom companies serving the higher education market. For information on how to become an exhibitor at this event, please email email@example.com.
