Hello one and all, and welcome to another great AeriesCon user's conference!

This time around, our conference's theme focuses on the routes you take on the journey to student success - after all, the journey is just as important as the destination.

See you there - and don't forget to join us at our keynote on Monday in exhibit hall B!
