AUID annual conference is a 3-5 day immersion of education, networking, and tours. Typically 3-5 days in the fall, an AUID member will “host” this conference at the university of their employment. The week includes campus tours, continuing education units (CEU), thought-provoking presentations, a vendor showcase of products, and an awards banquet to recognize winners of the design competition. The conference provides a relaxed environment and ample time to network among members and discuss common issues; hopefully coming to some creative, positive solutions. The conference agenda may also include a tour of a relevant manufacturing facility, which can provide new perspectives on the products that members utilize.Washington University Image
