Pathways NEW!

What is an Alliance Pathway?

Pathways are a set selection of member presented sessions that guide an attendee through a progression of information based on the interest areas they select. Take part in some or all of the sessions. The choice is yours! Below are the five pathways that you can follow this year.

 Back to Basics

New to Alliance or just looking for a refresher on some of that basic functionality? The Back to Basics pathway focuses on the fundamentals for new and seasoned users alike.

 Life Hacks

Everyone wants to know the latest tip, trick, or shortcut. The Life Hacks pathway provides just that. Learn the latest techniques for making your job easier.


Focused on professional development and leadership, the Visionary pathway provides sessions that expand attendees’ “soft skills.”

 Data Management

Focusing on the importance of Data Governance, as well as Data Integration, including the relationship between these two important concepts, participants who embark on this journey will leave Alliance prepared to lead their institutions in effective sharing and use of data, as well as understanding how to best share the data across needs.

 Decision Making

Many institutions are facing big decisions in terms of technology and the future of their enterprise management systems. The Decision Making pathway provides a variety of sessions to aid in the decision making process.
