Business Affairs Conference & Expo August 2

The 2017 UNCG Business Affairs Conference & Expo, which are two separate events, will be held August 2 in the Elliott University Center.

The Business Affairs division kicks off the 2017-18 academic year with a fun-filled, educational day for the university community.
The Conference includes training workshops from Human Resources, Facilities, Campus Enterprises and Financial Services with subject matter that can assist you and your department when conducting business with these departments. The Conference fun will begin at 8 a.m on Tuesday, August 2, and will run until 4 p.m. Online registration is now open.

As with last year, there will also be an Expo, a separate event that will highlight departments within the division that you might have heard about but didn’t know exactly what their function was. Come meet the Business Affairs staff and enjoy the festivities. The Expo will open at 11:30 a.m. and is free to attend.

UNCG Business Affairs consists of several departments; Campus Enterprises, Facilities, Finance, Foundation Finance, Human Resources, Police and Risk Management. In 2016, Business Affairs held an inaugural expo so that the individual units within each department could showcase who they are and the innovations and services provided by each unit to the other employees within Business Affairs. Last year’s event was well received, so the division is doing it again and stepping it up a notch by opening it up to the entire campus.

What is the Conference all about? The Conference and Expo is a way for Business Affairs to reach out to you, our customers, to let you know the different departments and respective units included in Business Affairs. The Conference also allows Business Affairs the opportunity to present to our customers subject matter associated with services provided by several Business Affairs departments that you utilize often during the year.

What do I need to do to attend the Conference? Registering for the Conference through the web site, bafexpo.uncg.edu, allows the attendee to experience all aspects of the conference.

How much does it cost? There is a registration fee per attendee that will be paid by way of departmental funds.
