Why Should You Attend?


Here's what attendees had to say about past conferences:

"I thought it was the best conference I have been to! I think a lot of it has to do with the ability to network and discuss. One of the breakouts I went to dealt with the changing face of career services, and because the facilitators made it a discussion session it was extremely valuable."
"Thanks so much for all that everyone did to make this such a great conference!"
"As always, the networking opportunities were great!"
"Loved the Best Practices Exchange. I really enjoyed it as my first visit to VACE!"
"Overall, this networking is the best part of VACE."
"This was one of the best conferences I've been to. It was so well organized and flowed so well. The thought that went into the activities and the value added by participating in those activities was stellar. Really enjoyed the dinner and reception afterwards. It's nice that we share our professional knowledge and bond as friends and colleagues as well."
"After attending the conference I am definitely considering volunteering for one of the committees."
