Newly elected Regional Director-Elect
Congratulations to Logan Zumbrun, Conference & Events Coordinator, The College of William and Mary, for his recent election to the Region 4 leadership team.
Members from Johns Hopkins University recently hosted a successful Drive-In event on their campus with 36 people in attendance. The agenda included various round table discussions and plenty of time for networking.
(pictured are the staff from American University who presented a session on revamping their student staffing model)

The College of William and Mary hosts Drive-In
The College of William and Mary will host the Summer Conference & Event Season W'Rap Up Drive-In September 30, 2019.
In a roundtable discussion format with a facilitator to keep things moving, let's learn from each other! What industry or campus challenges or trends are you seeing? What lessons did you learn the hard way (and what do you wish someone had told you sooner)? What are some best practices that already exist that could be built upon or shared to others just starting to sail uncharted waters? And, perhaps a most favorite topic discussion in Region 4, how did you do it? I mean, we all know conference professionals make magic happen, but what's behind the smoke and mirrors? Join us as we embark upon a learning journey in our annual Summer Season W"Rap" Up Drive-In!

Towson University Hosts 27 Commencement Ceremonies
Matt Curio of Towson University posted on the Region 4 Facebook page (May 23) news of a very busy Commencement season. “First two graduation ceremonies of the season down at Towson’s SECU Arena. 4 more University ceremonies this week, to be followed by 21 High Schools after Memorial Day. Long days but worth it to create the lasting memories for all of our graduates.”

Great Turnout at Region 4 Drive-In
We had a great turnout for our Drive In at University of Maryland College Park on January 22! Thanks to all who came. Eight schools were represented and totaling about 30 participants all excited to talk about the topic of Construction on Campus. The tour of campus and their new hotel called The Hotel were wonderful. It was also fun to have lunch in their anytime Dining (where they scan students finger vs using meal/id cards)! Thank you to Tom Flynn and the whole UMD team for hosting us.
