PA Computer Directors Meeting 2019

The PA Computer Directors community was developed as platform for sharing experiences, knowledge, and questions about IT-related issues in higher ed environments. The annual meeting is an opportunity for members to network and expand those conversations face-to-face. The meeting rotates through campuses, and this year is hosted by York College of Pennsylvania.

This conference is free to P.A. Higher Education - IT Professionals thanks to our wonderful sponsors! Please make sure to register before March 29, 2019 as space is limited.

The Appell Life Sciences Building is home to the departments of Biological Sciences, Behavioral Sciences, and Education. The Willman Business Center is home to the Graham School of Business.
