CISOA, 3CBG to Present March 2015 Conference for CCC IT ProfessionalsThe California Community Colleges’ Chief Information Systems Officers Association (CISOA) and the California Community College Banner Group (3CBG) have teamed up once again to present a 2015 annual conference, running March 8 through March 11 at the Hyatt Regency Monterey.


The conference is a full day longer than last year’s, and will offer an increased number of important sessions, including a keynote address from California Community Colleges (CCC) Chancellor Dr. Brice W. Harris. More than 300 attendees are expected to register for the conference.

Ellucian, a 40-year-old higher-education software, services and analytics firm that is the combination of the former Datatel and SunGard Higher Education, is playing a leading role in the development of the 2015 conference program. More than 28 sessions will be hosted by Ellucian focused on the company’s Banner ERP system, including roundtable discussions and information-rich presentations on numerous areas of interest to CCC staff.

The 2015 conference will be the second time CISOA has partnered with 3CBG for its annual IT conference. The partnership makes it possible to present technical and functional information in the same event, organizers said.

“We are very excited about this year’s conference,” said James Temple, Associate Vice President, Information Technology, College of the Canyons. “We are bringing together CISOA, 3CBG and Ellucian as partners in boosting student achievement. The role of community colleges continues to change with information technology playing an increasingly responsible role in increasing access and success for our students.”

The full conference program will become available in January. Early bird discount registration is available now through Jan. 17, 2015.

“We encourage community college staff in IT, student services, finance, human resources and other administrations to visit our website and contact us for more information and updates,” Temple said.
