Overview & Program

What is a "Best Practices" Conference?

As advising colleagues, we have much to share and teach each other about our advising methods. Our goal is to share our best practices, our best "secrets" you might say, for creating efficient and effective academic advising systems. Please join us to learn how Georgia colleges and universities are reaching students through innovative advising strategies. This is also a great opportunity to network with our peers at other institutions.

Here is what past participants had to say about their "Best Practices" experience...

"I walked away with a new sense of commitment to uplifting students, my co-workers and myself."
"I found it to be a wonderfully positive learning experience."
"I want to thank you for inviting me to present and a wonderful conference. This was my 2nd year presenting at GTAAN and I definitely plan to continue my involvement. Everyone was incredibly nice, welcoming, and warm. Breakfast and lunch was perfect. Many thanks to you and your colleagues."
"I wanted to thank you for making my registration process run so smoothly. I also wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the day. Every session I attended was interesting and informative, and I especially enjoyed both of the special speakers."
