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:
DO IT! It was so helpful plus it was nice to know people at the opening reception. I felt that the people I met initially were the go-to individuals throughout the rest of the conference. We were able to share and discuss what we were learning.
Take it all in. The experience of IEI and the Conference was great from a first-time attendee perspective. The networking on a small scale prior to Conference helps everyone become more comfortable about talking with others before you see the Conference on a much grander scale with more people from other universities. The team selected to teach IEI was great and very welcoming.
Everyone should attend at least once. It gave me a great opportunity to connect with several professionals in more depth.
I can't even begin to tell you how helpful this was for me. I am almost two years into my position managing the card office with no prior experience of how to do this. The information I learned during IEI and the NACCU conference is invaluable.
