The Higher Education User Group recognizes that our members want to network with other members that are geographically close to them and face similar issues. The International Conferences are events for members from US & Canada, Asia/Pacific, Europe/Middle East/Africa and Latin Americas that have a need and desire to work with other institutions within a close proximity. Institutions outside of these groups are welcomed to attend, and are encouraged to subscribe and participate in all aspects of their community.
