2014 EACE Annual Conference: What First Time Attendees Thought

2014 EACE Annual Conference:

What First Time Attendees Thought

EACE Blog contribution by Jill Milon, College Recruitment &
Career Services Consultant

The 2014 EACE Conference in Annapolis was one of the best yet!  The pre-conference tour of the U.S. Naval Academy and leadership workshop were awesome.  The keynote speaker, Jon Vroman Co-Founder of the Front Row Foundation, was motivating and energizing.  The sessions were educational and thought-provoking.  As always, the conference was fun and was a great opportunity to network and catch-up with old friends.

Since this conference veteran always enjoys the EACE conference, I reached out to a bunch of first-time conference attendees for their thoughts.  I was very excited to receive a tremendous response from first-time attendees.  Here’s what some first time conference attendees thought of this year’s event…

“I had amazing experience as a newcomer to EACE. I had previously attended other conferences solo and never really enjoyed myself or felt very welcome, but with EACE, the first thing I did was attend the newcomer lunch and immediately felt like part of the “family”.  Not only was I able to connect with other solo newcomers, but I was greeted by the President Elect Scott and a few other veteran EACE members who really made me feel comfortable and welcomed.  I was able to build lasting networking relationships with other new professionals as well as veterans in the field.  There were great learning experiences inside and out of the sessions.  This was my first, but definitely will not be my last EACE conference!”

“The conference was a wonderful experience.  It provided me with a lot of great ideas and best practices that I can incorporate into my work.  Everyone was welcoming and friendly and I am looking forward to continuing to build professional relationships with those I met at the conference.  The conference reenergized me and I very excited to start planning for the next academic year.”
