Telecommunications Manager Mary-Margaret Echevarria moderated several sessions at the 45th Annual Association for College and University Technology Advancement (ACUTA) Conference and Exhibition held April 24 - 27 in San Diego, CA. The 2016 conference theme was "Aspire to Connect" and included presentations by higher education institutions, corporations, and consulting firms.

Echevarria moderated three presentations: “Security in the Age of Tech Innovation,”, “Conversation with the Future,” and “Wrap - up to Go,” which featured technology use in education.

The conference boasted special workshops and other networking events that Echevarria was able to participate in. “The 45th Annual ACUTA Conference was a very enlightening experience.  I attended a Special Sunday Workshop:  Leadership Toolkit for Professionals to learn how to refine my current leadership skills and I came away with new ideas on how to improve our current model of service charge back,” said Echevarria. “I also had the opportunity to “Buddy” a first-time attendee to assist her through her first time at the conference and ensure that she was able to get the most of the sessions and networking opportunities with other attendees.”

ACUTA is a non-profit educational association dedicated to advancing communication and collaboration in higher education communities. The association represents over 1900 individuals at more than 600 institutions.
