Good Morning!


We are nearing the proposal deadline for the Security Professionals Conference.  Last year’s conference was also held in St. Louis and, as a CIO, it was terrific to watch the presentations and speak with security professionals from schools across the country about their projects, strategic direction and even their professional development.  Our mentoring program and track for new professionals has really taken off.


The great success of this conference is in the presentations that are brought forward every year.  We could use your help with ensuring that we have an excellent program for our security professionals again this year.  Please encourage your Jedi warriors to put in a proposal for the conference by sharing out the information below.  This is an excellent way to support their professional development!
