2017 UNC System Advancement



Dear UNC System Advancement Colleagues,

Welcome to the 2017 University of North Carolina System Advancement Symposium!

We hope that you will join us in beautiful Asheville for what promises to be our best and most memorable event yet! The UNC Advancement Symposium is designed to offer a variety of break-out and plenary sessions that explore innovative ideas, thought-provoking panels, and a chance to meet amazing professionals from across the state.

This year we are honored to have speakers who have impacted University Advancement not only in North Carolina but nationally, as well. Comprehensive and captivating discussions will prepare you to champion your institution’s strengths and advance its work at a time when it matters most. Programming is tailored for staff from every kind of institution and at every level – whether you’re a newcomer, a mid-level professional, or a key decision maker/chief advancement officer. So dive in to the sessions, soak up the speeches and panel discussions, roll up your sleeves at a workshop, and don’t forget to save a little energy to network with your colleagues.

Get ready to inspire and be inspired. Network, interact, learn, and grow!

We look forward to seeing you at University of North Carolina at Asheville on May 16‐17!
