Save The Date!

set a reminder on your calendar

Earlier this year, nearly 200 higher education web professionals — from marketing, design, development, coding, social media, and management —gathered in Flint, Michigan, at the inaugural HighEdWeb Regional Conference in Michigan.

The feedback from attendees about the conference was tremendously positive.

That’s why we’re overjoyed to announce that the second annual HighEdWeb Michigan RegionalConference will be held Thursday, May 22 and Friday, May 23, 2014, at the University of Michigan’s Ann Arbor Campus.

Please save that date.
