2014 Admissions Conference

White space
Conference Dates: May 27 - 29, 2014

The 2014 Admissions Conference will take place in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario from May 27-29.  

The theme of this year's Admissions Conference is "Working Smarter" and is geared toward, not only directors, but associates, officers and administrative staff as well. Every admissions office across the country, regardless of size, day or boarding, is continually searching for new innovative ways to work smarter. This conference will address admissions trends, enrolment management and will discuss the tools needed in order to work smarter in all areas of our admissions. It will also allow much time for networking and informal conversations with colleagues from across the country. 

This year's key note speaker is Chris Baker of the Baker Group. She will get us focused on enrolment management and frame the discussion for the two days at the conference. Additional speakers include: 
  • Social Media guru, Travis Warren
  • Anne Marie Kee, Executive Director CAIS
  • Janice Crampton, Executive Director of AISAP
  • Marijke Bakker, Partner at Apple Financial Services 
Each session will be followed by break out groups geared towards different roles in the admissions office to provide PD opportunities for all in your department.
