Fresh Air and Fresh Ideas

More than 225 advancement professionals attended the 2014 SUNYCUAD Educational Conference in Lake Placid, June 4-6. The Adirondack Summit offered two plenaries and 30 breakout sessions on topics including crisis communication; making high-end videos on a low-end budget; storytelling through social media; community college fundraising; and emerging technologies.

SUNYCUAD was pleased to present its Educational Achievement Award to Dr. W. Hubert Keen, president of SUNY Farmingdale State College and former special assistant to SUNY’s provost. For a list of conference attendees or copies of presentations, please contact Nancy Griffin at
