Unable to attend Summit this year? Anxious to know what’s in store with the release of Banner 7.0? Curious how your peers at other California Community Colleges that have implemented Banner are using Banner to their advantage? Would you like to learn more about new and/or existing Banner products that your district is thinking about implementing?

Well, if you answered yes to any of these questions, you should attend the 2005 California Community College Banner User’s Group (3CBG) Conference scheduled for April 5-6, 2005. This year’s conference will be hosted at the beautiful Doubletree Hotel in centrally located Bakersfield California. The conference begins on Tuesday April 5, 2005 at 12:00pm and ends on Wednesday April 6, 2005 at 4:00pm.

In past years, over 200 of your peers from 3CBG member districts have met annually at this conference to discuss common issues, to hear about future Banner releases and the impact on California Community Colleges, to share innovative ideas and network with their peers from throughout the State. Due to the budget problems in California, it has been over two years since the last 3CBG Conference was held so there will be many opportunities to learn more about what other districts have been doing to enhance their Banner implementations.

For this year’s conference, five tracks have been selected – Finance, Student, HR/Payroll, Financial Aid and Special Interest (Technical, Reporting, Portals, Imaging, Workflow and other special interests). The conference begins with a lunch and keynote presentation about Banner 7.0, followed by a general opening session for each track except Special Interest. Finally, there will be five additional sessions for each of the five tracks for a total of twenty-nine Community College focused Banner related presentations.

The contracts have been signed and attendees can now reserve their rooms at the two conference hotels using the information below. There is limited room availability at the Doubletree Hotel ; however, a large block of rooms has been reserved for this conference at the Hilton Garden Inn which is located adjacent to the Doubletree Hotel. If you are planning to arrive Monday, we do have 10 rooms at the Doubletree Hotel blocked out for that night and I would recommend that you make your reservations quickly to book those rooms for both nights. As a reminder, the hotels will only hold our blocks of rooms until March 4th.
