Registration Is Open for the Best Higher Ed Conference of the Year: #OUTC15
by Carol Clements on December 4, 2014
It’s on! Registration is officially open for our favorite event of year—the 2015 OmniUpdate User Training Conference (OUTC15). Our customers love it too. After attending the conference two years in a row, Eichelle Thompson (pictured), Web & Photo Manager at Mount Mary University, had this to say:
“The OmniUpdate User Training Conference offers an invaluable opportunity to network with others who do what I do, to compare processes, and to share ideas that are meaningful to my daily work and the administration of OU Campus. Hearing from the support and development staff is enlightening. Getting to meet the people behind the product shows me how committed they are and solidifies my confidence that our institution made the right choice.”

It’s going to be a great time of sharing and learning for all levels of OU Campus web content management system (CMS) users, developers, and administrators! You’ll find out how campuses around the country are managing their responsive web design and course catalog projects, digital signage and communication needs, usability and training labs, web accessibility and information architecture challenges, SEO and personalization tasks, and blogging and email marketing responsibilities. Plus, Lance Merker, OmniUpdate President and CEO, will share the 2015 product roadmap and present the 2014 Gadget Challenge winners. He will also reveal what’s happening with all those great gadget ideas that were submitted as part of the challenge.

And, we have a special dinner cruise with 300 of the coolest and smartest people in higher education (that’s you!).

If your institution is currently in the implementation process, OUTC15 is a great time to have a face-to-face meeting with your project manager and implementation team. Request a group meeting time by contacting Rachelle Avery, Event & Promotions Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A big OmniUpdate high five goes out to Jim Heiney, Web/Exchange Administrator at Lock Haven University, and Marie Wise, Web Marketing & Communications Coordinator at Lower Columbia College, (both pictured) for contributing to the OmniUpdate blog. Both earned free registrations to OUTC15 for their participation. In fact, Jim will be sharing his reasons for attending OUTC in an upcoming post. If you would like to blog for your chance to receive free registration to our 2016 conference, please contact Erin Leavitt, Marketing Coordinator, at email@example.com for more information.
