The Only Constant is Change…

The above title is a paraphrase of Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, who is attributed for saying "change is the only constant in life." This phrase came to mind as I thought about what is ahead in 2017.

The HEUG Board will see change as a new President takes over.  Current President, Mario Berry (Lone Star College), will hand over the reigns to President-Elect, Jane Broad (University of Glasgow), during next month's Alliance 2017 conference.  Oracle products will continue to evolve with the focus this year gravitating towards cloud based products.  We’re all struggling with budget concerns as funding for Higher Education continues to be a challenge, but let's move on to what's familiar!

Once again we return to the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas for Alliance 2017!  As always, we have a great conference in store full of great sessions and fun.  Don’t forget to build your agenda! Have you registered yet?  It’s not too late to register.     

We just completed our Annual Membership Survey and want to thank those who participated and provided feedback.  We will summarize the results and provide a detailed report soon. Congratulations to Lidia Anderson from Central Washington University who is the lucky winner of an iPad!  

Keep an eye out on HEUG.Online as we are putting the final touches on the HEUG Annual Report and will release it soon.  Looking forward, we are excited for our first ever Cloud Symposium event in a few weeks.  Once again, the January HEUG Education Series lineup has great topics, make sure to check out the schedule today!

I hope to see you soon in Las Vegas!
