The conference is designed for those who are involved in business process decisions and moving their organization forward with PeopleSoft. You should include staff who are hands-on in the system, too. “Not for the payroll tech I hired 4 weeks ago” or the “new hire who needs to learn PeopleSoft.” NOTE: This is not training! 

Why attend? (Objectives): To learn things, to talk to others, to share ideas, to leave feeling refreshed and inspired. Intended goal/outcome: As a team, participate in a variety of sessions and then share with one another after. Disseminate info to your own user community. 

Costs: There is no conference fee for attendees (free). Continental breakfast will be provided by SDCOE. Attendees can opt to pay for a box lunch (cost TBD).

How Districts Are Involved

District participation in planning – Committee meets 1x/month thru August, then 2x/month and as-needed in September and October.

District input for topics (survey) – Each organization designated 1-2 "Conference Contacts" who submitted a survey (and pre-registration form) by June 23. The survey was used to identify the conference sessions. 

District volunteers for presenting and facilitating sessions – This is a district-driven event. The goal is to have as many district and charter school presenters and facilitators as possible. The planning committee will be reaching out in August-September for “call for presenters."
