Make plans now to attend MBUG 2004!
February 22 - 24 in Tunica, MS. Come in early Sunday to register, take in the area sites or get a little R & R to prepare for the conference. But don't miss the Sunday night gathering to get acquainted or re-acquainted with your colleagues from other institutions.
The MBUG Conference will be hosted at the Grand Veranda Resort in Tunica. You must make your reservations using the toll free number, 1-800-WIN-4WIN (1-800-946-4946) and specify you are registering with the Mississippi Banner Users Group to get the special discount rate. The deadline for making your reservation at the special discount rate is February 2, 2004. After that date, rooms are subject to availability and you may not receive the discount rate.
The Veranda Resort is not adjacent to the casino, but continuous shuttle service is available. With 568 rooms and suites, it's surrounded by a golf course and overlooks the Grand Lake. There is also a breathtaking outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and exercise room. For more information, visit www.grandcasinos.com.
Dress for the conference
Official dress code for the conference is "business casual," with Tuesday designated as "Wear Your Colors" day. Show your school pride by wearing your favorite school attire, colors, or logo on Tuesday.
Birds of a Feather Sessions
In order for the birds of a feather sessions to be their best, we need your questions, problems - or maybe even "helpful hints" in advance. Please take a few minutes to email your questions or comments to either Sherry Crocker or Diane Garvin. Yes, we even want you tech guru's to put your topics on the table!
Other Notes of Interest
Make sure to bring plenty of business cards to share with others. Sharing information and helpful hints with your counterparts at other schools is often one of the most long-lasting benefits of the conference.
Of course, we always look forward to the door prizes! If you have prizes to donate, get them to your school's representative so they can bring them on Saturday.
Have a safe trip, and we look forward to seeing you all on Sunday!
Who should Attend?
Any functional user and/or technical staff responsible for Banner systems at any Mississippi community college or institution of higher learning. We extend a hearty welcome to institutions from other states who will be joining us again this year for the conference!
