"You should go to a user group conference"
By Lauren Gilchrist
Really, you should. You will get the help you need – and learn things you haven't even considered until now. You will meet other people whose daily activities are similar to your own. You’ll come back to your district better equipped to serve as a beacon of Skyward knowledge for your colleagues. When it’s all said and done, you’ll be glad you went.
I recently had the opportunity to attend the Software and Service User Group conference in Wisconsin after the Skyward Digital Media team was invited to bring our photo booth onsite for some entertainment. After spending a day sitting in on sessions and conversing with school district leaders employed in a wide variety of roles, I now understand why thousands of Skyward users attend these groups every year. These conferences are led by innovative thinkers and are packed with valuable advice and demonstrations.
