CEO Forum and Dinner

In the spirit of Provocative Questions and Courageous Answers, the ARC2019 CEO Forum on Wednesday, April 10 will be a new and different experience. You’ll be special guests at the President’s Launch & Challenge and the Keynote session that form the heart of the conference – so you can hear what we think your teams will be talking about after ARC – and for three tailored discussion sessions just for CEOs. Trends, insights, predictions, questions: all on the table, plus suggestions for how WSCUC can better serve your students and institutions.
