The Dallas regional was the best ever. We had 45 attendees. This was the best turn out yet in our history. Mary Ann Frye and Paola Sotomayor directed the regional. This was a first time that board members didn't run the show. We found that this was a great education for Mary Ann and Paola on how to put on a small conference. They did a wonderful job. I appreciate the hard work and dedication they put into the regional. We had lot's of discussion, lot's of food and several fun games.
The Southern Regional was held in San Antonio on April 2 and 3 on the beautiful Trinity University campus. Judy Schwab and her team made it easy to find the meeting spot with colorful Texas BUC$ direction signs all along the walk way. There were about 19 attendees from 7 institutions along with 7 of our Platinum exhibitors. Lots of great topics were discussed including veteran’s benefits, return of Title IV aid and the growing debt, Texas Guaranteed Promise fund, red flag rules, and collections. Allison Snyder with PeerTransfer conducted a fun and thought-provoking group activity. read more »
