The conference will be on Oct. 15, 2019, in the School of Education Building. This will be an all-day event; registration begins at 8:30 a.m.

Business Affairs is proud to invite the UNCG community to join us for a day of concurrent workshop sessions designed to provide practical training and resources that will support our efforts to meet the exciting challenge of UNCG’s “inflection point!”

The theme of the conference is “Innovation at the Inflection Point.”

This means a transformation in how Business Affairs provides customer service to and engages with our colleagues across campus. These efforts are informed by principles of empowerment through access to information, and engagement through partnership with service providers.

Sessions are tailored to inform, educate, and entertain administrative staff who engage with and do business exchanges with UNCG’s Business Affairs. All staff are welcome

Sessions will include:

  • A Purchasing Primer – Panel Discussion
