2016 sunapsis Users Conference

Expand your skills and your network, October 10-12, in Atlanta!

Our annual conference is the best way to stay up to date on sunapsis and connect with fellow users. We are very excited to be hitting the road this year, after many years in Indiana, to expand our reach and bring the conference to you, the end-users! We are thrilled our first visit is Atlanta, the home of several of our client institutions; Emory University, Georgia State University, and our host, Georgia Institute of Technology! We will be making our way around the U.S. over the next few years in order to help you:

  • Improve your sunapsis skills in sessions with our team and other users
  • Network with people from institutions nationwide
  • Learn about our plans for sunapsis and offer your input
  • Discuss best practices in international services
  • Have the option of attending a two-day workshop before the conference

Whether you’re a new client or a regular at our conferences, you’re sure to learn something valuable.
