Here are some key reasons registrants give for participating in #ccae2016:

"I'll be attending #ccae2016 because I am interested in hearing the Canadian perspective on the funding challenges facing the post-secondary sector, and how we as advancement professionals can help alleviate those challenges for our respective institutions.

Most of all I'm looking forward to the beautiful backdrop that is Saskatoon and the chance to network with people from across the country."

Barry Knapp, Director of Development, University of Lethbridge

"I’m attending #ccae2016 because I'm presenting a session with my team about planning for and conducting a milestone anniversary celebration: The 50th anniversary of UNB’s Saint John Campus. We look forward to sharing valuable lessons about building awareness, pride and affinity with the community.

I didn’t attend the annual conference last year, but was fortunate enough to participate in a CCAE marketing communications workshop in February 2014 in Toronto. I’ve never been to a conference where I’ve taken so much of what I learned and immediately applied the ideas and solutions discussed in my own office. I’m looking forward to re-connecting with some of those who attended that workshop and meeting new contacts."

Sonya Gilks,Director, Communications Office, University of New Brunswick

"I'll be attending #ccae2016 because networking and reconnecting with advancement colleagues across Canada is really beneficial.

I especially look forward to attending the high-quality professional development sessions, to hearing the great keynote speakers, and of course to stepping out for the Social Night!"

Joanne Ballance, Director of Development, Grande Prairie Regional College

"I will be attending as the conference provides relevant post-secondary learnings that have a specific Canadian content. Real examples from our peers. I look forward to the Canadian educational content."

John Dumonceaux, Senior Development Officer, SAIT
