Fall 2017 AeriesCon

Date & Time

October 09, 2017 - October 10, 2017
7:30 AM - 4:00 PM

AeriesCon is an opportunity for clients to enhance their existing foundation of knowledge and share their experiences to better meet the needs of their schools. Topics are presented using a lecture format with a single computer and a projection unit. The conference workshops are NOT designed to replace training for new clients and hands-on environment is limited to an open forum question and answer area. Our semi-annual conferences have always been an important tradition in celebrating you, our customers and clients. This year, we're shaking things up by shining the spotlight directly on the everyday heroics of Aeries users! To your students and colleagues, you're champions - and we proudly agree. This year's conference will feature a superheroic theme befitting of your selfless efforts!
