DIGARC Welcomes Record Number of Attendees to 6th Annual DigarcU User Conference
LAKELAND, Fla.—More than 160 higher education institutions from coast-to-coast gather in Orlando from March 17 – 20, 2019, for the 6th Annual DigarcU User Conference. Over 270 DIGARC software users will obtain certifications, enjoy thought leadership sessions and connect with fellow education professionals at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, Orlando.
DIGARC software users and DIGARC staff will lead sessions from March 18 – 20 on digital transformation, higher ed technology trends, DIGARC software best practices and more. Attendees can also experience new DIGARC solutions in demos and deep dives.
“We’re always focused on innovation and developing new capabilities for DIGARC users,” says Angela Selden, CEO of DIGARC. “Last year, we announced our new SECTION and SELECT products and this year we’re planning another big announcement to enhance the way our customers connect with students.”
Ranging from small private colleges to large public universities, from community colleges to for-profit institutions, the diverse attendee list includes professionals from various disciplines including provosts, VPs, registrars, along with technology, marketing and enrollment.
“This is my sixth DigarcU and each conference has gotten better,” says Deb Dewent, Assistant Director of Instructional Support for Grand Rapids Community College. “I look forward to connecting with my colleagues and hearing about best practices for DIGARC software. Plus, I love coming to sunny Florida in March.”
The first day of the conference, March 17, is focused on certifications for the Acalog academic catalog management system and the Curriculog curriculum management system. An opening reception March 17 from 7 – 9 p.m. gives attendees an opportunity to mix-and-mingle and enjoy St. Patrick’s Day revelry.
“We’re thrilled to have this record-setting number of attendees joining us for DigarcU, and nearly half of them returning for their second year or more at the event,” says Selden. “It’s truly a testament to the value this conference provides our users.”
