About the Conference
On June 26th, the Georgia Tech Academic Advisors Network (GTAAN) hosted the 2017 Best Practices Conference. The conference began back in 2004 and was originally a Georgia Tech-only event. But In 2006, the conference was opened to colleagues from around the state and region.
While the conference has undergone some changes, it remains a day of professional development for the advising community—although the conference is designed especially for academic advisors, many other professionals in related fields attend and contribute to the programming. The main purpose of the conference is to come together to share and learn from current best practices—what’s new, what’s working, and what’s especially relevant to academic advising.
