Ad Astra was honored to host more than 200 clients at Aspire 2016, our annual conference, on October 16-19 in Kansas City. (See our highlight video and Aspire 2017 save the date below!)
Our time at Aspire was jam-packed with a wonderful keynote presentation from Dr. Julie Johnson, the vice president of strategy at Complete College America, more than 40 concurrent sessions (the majority of which were led by clients), and multiple interesting panelists featuring prominent academic leaders. Guests also spent time meeting with our Ad Astra Account Executives, Trainers, and Technical Support team.
Tuesday afternoon’s general session focused on Ad Astra’s Product Roadmap and the future of our products and services. Other highlights of the conference include the introduction of our 2017 Client Advisory Board (CAB), philanthropic opportunities with iEmpathize and Outreach Program, and a festive party celebrating Ad Astra’s 20th year in business at Kansas City’s own, Boulevard Brewing Company. Delicious food and beverages and karaoke was enjoyed by all.
Thanks again to our 44 client session presenters, our excellent keynote speaker and panel experts, our staff who dedicated themselves to our guests during this time, and especially to you – our valued partners – who traveled to Kansas City to “Aspire to Inspire” their academic institutions, students, and the higher education industry as a whole.
We hope to see you at Aspire 2017: Oct. 15-18, 2017 in Kansas City!
