ACUTA’s Annual Conference Addresses Challenges

of Emerging Technologies on Today’s Campuses


LEXINGTON, Kentucky, April 23, 2008 – With speakers representing 26 different colleges and universities, this year’s Annual Conference of ACUTA, the Association for Information Communications Technology Professionals in Higher Education, will once again be an extravaganza of expertise sharing.


The 2008 conference, July 13-17 in Las Vegas, is the 37th for ACUTA, the only international association dedicated to serving the needs of higher education information communications technology professionals. Representing nearly 2,000 individuals at some 780 institutions, ACUTA’s core mission is the sharing of technology and management information, and its Annual Conference is its largest event of the year.


In addition to the dozens of campus professionals sharing their knowledge, successes, and challenges in educational sessions, the conference will feature a strong lineup of industry expert speakers. Topics range from emergency communications to unified messaging to Voice over IP and financial issues.


Keynote speaker for the event is creative visionary and motivational futurist Warren Arbogast, who will focus on the future of the IT service organization and explore how colleges and universities can get the most out of their information communications technology investments.


 “This year’s Annual Conference sessions are tailored to the needs of our members in addressing the emerging technologies on campus and the effects these technologies have on students, faculty, and the administration,” said Jeri Semer, executive director of ACUTA. “But beyond the sessions, there is no better opportunity for our members to network with their peers. By sharing the best strategies and techniques, they benefit themselves and their schools.”


ACUTA’s Annual Conference is in conjunction with its 12th annual Forum for Strategic Leadership in Communications Technology, a two-day assembly of senior attendees, with intensive sessions taught by higher education leaders and expert consultants. The forum’s focus this year is how to plan for, and fund, the technologies required to fill the increasing service demands that colleges and universities of all sizes are seeing, from students, faculty, administration, and other stakeholders.


The Annual Conference will also feature an exhibit hall with companies showcasing the latest technology products and services. During the event, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, winners of leadership and institutional excellence awards will be announced.
