President's Message

Patric Wamsley

On behalf of the SACUBO Board, I would like to wish you all the best in 2018. Thank you to our members, volunteers, and business partners for your support in 2017, and we look forward to working with you in 2018! We are proud to highlight our Year in Review and provide important information regarding upcoming events.

SACUBO hosted over 685 registered attendees in Hollywood, FL at our Annual Meeting and Next Generation Chief Business Officers program. This program offered over 45 unique sessions and the opportunity for participants to earn up to 18.5 CPE credits. The Fall Workshop held in Savannah, GA provided around 385 participants with 23 different session options and up to 15 CPE credits.

Professional development and networking opportunities were also provided at the College Business Management Institute (CBMI) in Lexington, KY and the 2nd Annual SACUBO Women’s Leadership Forum in Atlanta, GA. On a more local or focused program level, SACUBO continued its support of meetings such as the Drive-In Workshop held at Auburn University and the Business of the University Conference held in Houston, TX.

In an effort to provide affordable programs and opportunities to members across the South, SACUBO provided over 15,000 CPE credits to our members in 2017!

In addition to a successful year for ongoing education for members, SACUBO also completed a refresh of its brand and online presence. The new logo was presented at the Annual Meeting, and the new website went live in June. Since the beginning of July, almost 10,000 users have visited the SACUBO website. The new format facilitates easier conference registration, provides a free job opportunities posting board, and offers improved searches for other resources including our RFP library and benchmarking program.

None of these successes could have been accomplished without the support of our Board of Directors, Committee members and other members, and business partners. Thank you for all your time and effort throughout 2017! And, we hope you will mark your calendars and join us for these SACUBO programs in 2018:

Women’s Leadership Forum | February 21-23 | San Antonio, TX | Register Now

Annual Meeting | May 6-8 | Fort Worth, TX | Registration Opens in January

Sincerely,

Patrick Wamsley
