There is no better conference across Europe for professionals in Alumni Relations, no matter if you work in a top ranked university or a small school in a village. CASE Europe Annual Conference is where leading educational institutions and professionals get together in order to advance third institutions and careers.
CASE is the only organisation that enables me to be in touch with peers from many different levels and regions/countries. Three days of concentrating networking and inspiration, an important experience to get a view beyond the fence and most productive.
I found the conference to be very insightful and interesting. I particularly enjoyed the Newcomers' Fast Track programme. Having never been to CASE before, and with only 6 months in the HE sector under my belt, it was the perfect way to start off the conference.
The Annual Conference provides a unique opportunity for me to learn from other professionals in the sector, as well as meet fellow alumni relations colleagues and make valuable connections, something that would be hard to access without the conference.
Very worthwhile conference with something for everyone. It is the first conference I've been to that offered so many relevant sessions, at times it was hard to choose which one to go to! I've returned to my university feeling inspired to make a difference.
The CASE Europe Annual Conference provides an unparalleled opportunity to improve your work in the advancement of education. From the expert led sessions on Philanthropy, Communications and Alumni Relations, through to unparalleled networking opportunities, The CASE Europe Conference is a highlight of my annual calendar, and an invaluable opportunity to help share best practice and new insights that enhances our sector and professional working lives.
Still one of the best professional development conferences in the world.
My first CASE event left me feeling immensely proud to be part of the HE industry and in no doubt that my colleagues in the sector share this feeling of pride in what we do and why we do it. I am so glad I attended the Newcomers pre-conference as it was a super-friendly crowd including staff, volunteers and attendees during these sessions, which made me feel primed, inspired, confident and ready to network my way around the masses who arrived on Tuesday afternoon!
