Monroe Community College    

Community college advancement professionals are known for being resourceful, dedicated and (not always by choice) thrifty.

That's why we've designed a conference to make the most of your limited resources.

There's no other place where you can learn about everything from alumni relations to marketing, fundraising to advancement services - plus something for college leaders and volunteers.

Join us in Sacramento  where, beyond the dozens of relevant, timely sessions, you'll find:

Kindred spirits: A group of people who do exactly what you do, and know the challenges we face every day.

A vibrant downtown: Our hotel is steps from restaurants, shops, Old Sacramento...and plenty of places to sip the nearby Napa Valley products.

An affordable destination: Make the most of those limited funds!

Inspiration: Leave energized and loaded with practical ideas that you can put in motion immediately.

See you in Sacramento!
