The annual event is open to higher education professionals in Tennessee and surrounding states who have adopted Banner® by Ellucian software. It serves as an informal forum in which participants can present and share information related to the administrative technology needs of higher education institutions. It was established to provide a forum for active examination of how administrative technology supports the institution and its students, faculty and staff, and how this support can be improved.
