What Will You Learn?

Sessions and events are specifically designed to help attendees learn the fundamentals of campus card programs, industry best practices, and communication techniques. You will participate in valuable discussions and make new connections with your peers.

Panelists will share an overview of their campus card program including campus services offered, program structure, funding, technology, and responsibilities. You’ll learn about industry terminology, campus identification credentials, marketing, innovations, best practices, online photo submission, customer service, mobile credentials, NACCU resources and more.

We’ll also hold round table discussions facilitated by campus professionals. These small group break-outs are highly rated year after year. You'll be asked for your topics of interest prior to attending to ensure your needs are met.

Testimonials from attendees:

Don't be shy, talk to everyone you can. The people taking part in IEI and the Conference are friendly, helpful and full of knowledge! Don't be afraid to ask questions, we all come to IEI and the conference to learn. Also, make sure you get involved as much as possible; volunteering is a great way to meet everyone and you learn more about the event to explore.

SIGN UP FOR IT! This is your golden ticket, the magic door, whatever you want to call it, for experiencing the rest of the conference and for when you return to campus. This session's motto should be 'You are not alone on this quest'.

IEI is a great kickoff to the NACCU conference. It allows you to meet people and get questions answered so you're better able to understand and absorb the conference sessions.
