"I had the pleasure of attending the 2024 Association for Institutional Research (AIR) Forum in Denver, CO last week! It was pleasant to reconnect with old colleagues, share experiences, and learn more about current analytics trends in higher education. Exploring downtown Denver was also a bonus - I'll definitely need to make my way back to fully experience the area! 

I always leave these conferences feeling recharged from my community and motivated to implement new ideas back at work. In particular, I'm energized by a quote about AI and am ready to learn more every day: 'The world will keep moving on - if you stay in one place, you'll be left behind.' #networking #innovation #dataanalytics

"Last week I attended the #AIRForum in Denver, Colorado. It was fabulous to be able to find out how my American IR colleagues are innovating and the challenges they face. The contrasts and similarities with the challenges we face in Australian IR (#AAIR) were very illuminating for me. It was by far the largest gathering of IR professionals I have attended in my 30 years working in the Australian Higher Education Sector. There were so many high quality sessions to choose from! The stand out session for me was Beyond Waffle House: Transforming IR from Transactional Providers to Strategic Partners delivered by Phillip Wallace.
