We’re very excited about our outstanding plenary sessions with David Pogue of The New York Times, Sree Sreevinansan of CNET, and Michael Bierut of Pentagram. Recently added workshops include: “Use RebelMouse, Storify and Sprout Social to increase your Facebook and Twitter Engagement” by David Regan White of Empire State College and “Move Over Nordstrom: Building the Best Customer Service Program on the Planet” by Randy Burge of Stamats Higher Education Marketing. Don’t miss out – register today!
On Wednesday, June 5, there will be a newcomer reception followed by our conference dinner at the Hilton. Pack your flip-flops because on Thursday, June 6, we’ll head to the beach for a Long Island clambake with SUNY colleagues and friends. On Friday, June 7, SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher visits the conference to inspire us.
Consider signing up for a cruise along the Great South Bay on Friday night from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Cruises are provided by Captree Boat Basin, West Islip. Entertainment will be provided by Tony Sidito. The cost is $40. Space is limited so be sure to reserve your spot by June 4. The best way to see the South Shore lighthouses is from the water.
