Let's go to Santa Clara!

After attending LexCon in Nashville, followed by AALS in San Diego, and then getting to see my CALI fellows this past weekend, it occurs to me that a fairly large percentage of my phone's camera roll is comprised of fellow academic support professionals. The rest is just my cats. 

This means that I'm incredibly excited to announce that registration for the 10th Annual AASE Conference is open! The conference theme is Past, Present, Future: AASE at 10 and Beyond.” The conference will offer sessions focused on Diversity, Mental Health, Bar Prep, Academic Success, and Online Learning. The schedule will go live in late February!

The link is here - note that to get the member price, please log in! 

Note that the link also has hotel information, so we can all start planning our trip to Santa Clara!


For a few highlights, note that if you are new to academic support this year will have a "newbie" conference on Monday, which is always a great way to get your bearings and meet people. Also, if you are new to academic support and this is your first AASE conference,  I promise we are a friendly bunch and we look forward to meeting you!

Also, let's get excited about going to Northern California! Santa Clara is very close to San Jose (so you'd be flying into the San Jose airport) and not too far from San Francisco. Also, we will not be far from the Winchester Mystery House, and you know I'll be planning a side trip there!

The campus itself also sits on Mission Santa Clara de Asis, the 8th mission in the chain of 21 Fanciscan missions. You can read more about campus here.

I hope to see so many of you in May!
