About the Conference
The University of Alabama MIS Program is excited to be hosting the 2015 AIS Conference! The conference will run from late afternoon April 9th through mid-afternoon April 11th in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
The conference is a great opportunity to meet peers and industry professionals from across the world, gain new perspectives, expand your professional skillset, and make lasting friendships! Professional events and luncheons bring students together, and friendly competitions give them the opportunity to learn and grow together. In the evenings, students have the opportunity to enjoy a vibrant night life and explore the town together.
The 2015 AIS Student Chapter Leadership Conference and Competition features noted speakers from industry leaders, executives, and fellow students. It will promote leading practices for organizing and successfully operating student chapters. The conference will also provide professional networking to some of the nation's leading MIS executives and their firms. The conference is designed to develop MIS student leaders and grow relationships that can be leveraged.
Whether you school has an established chapter looking to grow participation, a young chapter working to build its value proposition to sustain success, or an MIS program interested in starting a student chapter, you can benefit from a weekend spent growing your network of peers, knowledge base, and inspiration to make an impact in your Student Professional Chapter.
