One Week Until We Summit Together
In less than a week we will gather together at the Slate Summit June 1-2 with optional pre-conference offerings on the afternoon of May 31 in Nashville's Music City Center. This year's program features 49 sessions presented by members of the Slate community, 28 affinity group meetings, networking, live entertainment, an epic dance party, and an exclusive live taping of Slate Night with Alexander Clark—an unforgettable late-night show filled with laughter, skits, special guests, and, of course, new features and functionality will be revealed!
If you're arriving in town on Wednesday, don't miss our pre-conference offerings which are free and designed to inspire you to do the most with Slate. Technolutions staff will lead sessions and discussions centered on the many ways Slate supports the complete student lifecycle.
New this year, the Client Success Team will be available on Thursday and Friday to meet with you and talk more about resources available within the broader Slate community. Visit them in the Client Success Lounge on Level 3 down the hall from the Slate Spirit Shop.
Don't miss the opportunity to connect with your colleagues in the Slate community and learn best practices from peer institutions. There is still plenty of time to register for the Slate Summit.
