Conference Season Welcome & Information

As we kick off summer, take a moment to review to a few things regarding summer conferences.

Conference Services has welcomed 7 new staff members in the past 2 weeks. These staff will be working in Slichter Hall and are being supervised by Tom and Danielle, our Conference Services Coordinators.

Conference Services has been busy over the last year working to implement the Conference Module in StarRez. We truly believe that this will ultimately make life easier for all of us, however in the present it is a lot of work and a long list of issues to sort out and address. Please take some time to explore StarRez and see what reports, dashboards, etc. can help make your job easier. A new system requires a new way of looking at issues and solutions. As we go through summer, please direct StarRez reports, issues, questions or suggestions to Amanda Thwing or Brian Ward. Tom and Danielle are busy making magic happen for us all and addressing immediate needs. Amanda and Brian will collect everything and help the team prioritize responses and fixes.

We are also welcoming 120 conferences this summer and many groups have all new staff! The Conference Team is busy trying to collect all of the needed details and with a 2 year gap, many seem to be starting from scratch. Please know that Conference Services is working as hard as possible to get you what you need. If there you are not getting what you need, and are unable to pull the information from StarRez, please let Amanda or Brian know and we will help problem solve.
