This year’s conference is all about how the business office can change the game on student success. But, you don’t do it alone. Bring a colleague from your school, state organization, or other association, to learn more about what other schools are doing to impact success, and how you can implement these strategies on your own campus. The individual who refers the most colleagues will earn a free registration to the 2016 Annual International Conference in Orlando! Questions?
