General Inquiries

This two-day event is a celebration and gathering of Liaison's community. We were inspired to create the live event series to reconnect with the powerful partners who energized us - and each other - pre-pandemic. The event offers thought-provoking peer-to-peer discussions, engaging presentations, interactive learning, and motivating keynotes from industry thought leaders. 

All partners in the Liaison community, including higher ed professionals exploring Liaison's solutions, members of professional associations, and users of TargetX, Othot, EMP, and CAS are invited to attend.  Programming will be relevant to those with roles in higher ed admissions, enrollment, marketing, technology, and student success. Sessions will include knowledge-building opportunities, special sessions, thought leadership discussions, and solution seminars.
