Meeting Information

Register Now, Pay Later
If your school’s fiscal year ends on June 30, you can register for either the AACRAO Technology<http://www4.aacrao.org/t/84> or Transfer Conference<http://www4.aacrao.org/t/85> and pay after the start of your new fiscal year! We have extended the early bird registration deadline to June 21; if you register<http://www4.aacrao.org/t/86> by that date, not only will you save $125 on your registration fee, you can defer your payment until July. Even if you register after the early bird deadline, you can still pay later. Simply go through the registration process and exit the system where payment is due. We will send a balance due notice after July 1. It’s as simple as that!

Attend Two Meetings for the Price of One
It’s not too late to plan your trip to Tucson for Tech and Transfer. Reserve your room<http://www4.aacrao.org/t/87> at the beautiful J.W. Marriott Starr Pass from July 14-16, and take advantage of three days of sessions, roundtables, and networking. Attendees must register for one meeting, but will have the option of attending sessions of interest at either meeting. The meetings will also share an opening reception, the exhibit hall, and the Monday plenary presentation discussing Future Trends in Higher Education.

What’s Happening at Tech

Technology Conference Preconference Workshops
This year’s Technology Conference offers a Sunday preconference workshop on “Enhancing Student Success.”<http://www4.aacrao.org/t/8c> Karen Thurmond and Glenn Munson of the University of Memphis will demonstrate how to use data to develop and implement strategies to enhance student success.

We are also offering our Registrar 101/FERPA Workshop<http://www4.aacrao.org/t/8d> for those new to the profession. This two-day workshop will also address the changes to the FERPA regulations – specifically those relating to technology – and how they affect your institution. In addition, at the conclusion of the meetings, a Registrar 201<http://www4.aacrao.org/t/8d> module is being offered for those with at least five years of experience.

The Registrar Forum @ Tech is again continuing this year. Led by a panel of seasoned experts, the Forum will challenge registrars to use technology to further the role and mission of the registrar’s office. Click here<http://www4.aacrao.org/t/8e> for information on the faculty, agenda, and pricing. And due to the success of the Registrar Forum, we are introducing The Admissions Forum @ Tech<http://www4.aacrao.org/t/8f>. With so many different technical tools, applications, analytics, and methods available to target students, how do we know what’s right for our campus? Discuss your questions with our distinguished faculty.
