ABSAP Conference

Every year in July, members of ABSAP converge on a B-school in a city that will never be the same. Members enjoy three days of professional and social events that encourage information sharing on best practices from the various schools represented. Attendees are able to brainstorm ideas that provide a much-needed surge to go back to their respective campuses with a fresh approach to their profession.

The annual conference is a collaborative environment where exchanging ideas and sharing successes and failures (we all have them!) enable attendees to learn from others, benchmark peer schools, brainstorm ideas and grow professionally.

A business school must have paid current membership dues in order for alumni relations professionals to attend the annual conference.  If your membership is not current, go to the red "Join Now" box to update membership, or contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
