Who’s in Charge? You Are.

We’re taking steps that allow you to customize your conference experience. 

Executive Director Christina Lewellen shares a new annual conference planning process that puts you in charge. [10-minute read]

Let’s talk about how much I love Starbucks. I was an early adopter (and defender) of the chain because 1) I can get exactly what I want, and 2) I know I’m going to get exactly what I expect for my $5. Whether you’re a fan of Starbucks’ lattes or not, the company certainly kicked off a culture of customization that has transcended many industries.

A conference is a bit more complicated than a coffee, but ATLIS aims to lead the way in presenting content and networking opportunities in a contemporary, responsive way. If you had to design the ideal conference to suit your exact needs, what would it include? 

Crowdsourcing the Conference

In the amount of time it would take for a barista to make your drink, you can answer a few simple questions to ensure that the ATLIS Annual Conference includes the content YOU need to help you serve your school communities better. This is your opportunity to outline exactly what will make the Chicago event a must-attend event for you in April 2020. 

Here’s how the revised process will roll out:

Have Your Say

We are crowdsourcing the content for the Annual Conference, and now’s the time for you to weigh in and have your say. With just a few minutes and a few questions, you can ensure that the Chicago event delivers a customized professional development opportunity for you and your team.

Next, Rank Others’ Opinions

Once we gather feedback from technology leaders, we’ll give you a chance to rank the ideas. Keep an eye on your ATLIS emails and we’ll invite you to vote and rank what sessions are most important to you and your school. 

Together, We’re Better

Only once we have a prioritized list of topics, issues, and sessions will we seek presenters and thought leaders in these spaces. We believe the “what” should come before the “who” and we’re confident you’ll feel the difference in Chicago. 

Save the (Coffee) Date

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone in Chicago. Perhaps we’ll find some time for a Starbucks run! 

April 5-8, 2020
