Hello one and all, and welcome to another great AeriesCon Users' 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.

As always, we're improving AeriesCon with some exciting new additions, including the brand-new Wednesday Advanced DBA & CALPADS day. Check it out!

See you in Ontario - and don't forget to join us at our welcome addresses on Monday and Tuesday morning!
