Successful Conference in NOLA!

ACHE South celebrated its roots with a successful conference held in New Orleans, Louisiana, site of the inaugural conference held in 1958 under the leadership of Ray Witte of Loyola University, New Orleans. Louisiana State University served as host and what a host they were! The 83 participants commented that it was a "Wonderful conference! Great people, great content" and "was extremely well planned". There were 3 keynote speakers, 22 concurrent sessions, networking opportunities, first timer activity, business meeting, 6 valuable sponsors, and an impromptu historical tour of the French Quarter. Thank you LSU and the conference planning committee for a superb experience!

Thoughts from a First Timer

Danielle Schukoske, Program Manager at Florida Institute of Technology shares her thoughts on her first ACHE South conference: "There are many interesting conferences a person may attend. However, when you attend a GREAT conference you talk about it for weeks. You find yourself re-energized and excited to return back to work. The ACHE South conference brings together educators and administrators that are passionate about their careers. This was my first time attending the ACHE South Conference and I plan to attend their next conference in Charleston, SC.

The conference was very well organized with concurrent sessions running to allow attendees to browse the itinerary and attend topics that best fit their position and interests. The topics ranged from emerging trends, overcoming challenges that face adult students, how to improve student support services to best practices to apply in the workplace. The key note speakers' topics varied but all had several things in common that left you feeling inspired, motivated and for me, with pages of my hand written notes that I was eager to share with my coworkers."
