Dear Trustees,

The Planning Committee has been hard at work developing an agenda that you will find of value. We are excited to share that a keynote speaker will address the group after lunch, Dr. David Tandberg, Vice President for Policy Research and Strategic Initiatives, State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO). Dr. Tandberg is one of four authors of the publication, “The State Higher Education Executive Officer and the Public Good. Developing New Leadership for Improved Policy, Practice and Research”. A copy of Dr. Tandberg’s book will be available for all Trustees who attend the Fall meeting.

The SHEEO organization is the national association of the chief executives of statewide governing, policy, and coordinating boards of postsecondary education. SHEEO serves its members as an advocate for state policy leadership, as a liaison between states and the federal government, as a vehicle for learning from and collaborating with peers, as a manager of multistate teams to initiate new programs and as a source of information and analysis on educational and public policy issues.

Please indicate your registration preferences on the registration form and return to Charissa Williams. Registration will be accepted until Thursday, September 27, 2018 if you need hotel lodging; Friday, October 5 if you do not need lodging.

A light reception has been planned for the evening of Thursday, October 11, 2018 from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel. Overnight hotel accommodations and the pre-conference reception will be at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel, 4650 Lindle Road, Harrisburg, PA 17111.

The meetings will take place at the Dixon University Center, 2986 North Second Street, Harrisburg, 17110. A brief summary of the workshop timeline and session topics follow. The full agenda to include the names of presenters, panelists and session descriptions will be posted soon.

PACT looks forward to your participation in the Fall Workshop. 

 

Thank you.

Jeff Smith
PACT President
