TRACS Conference

SAMSUNG            This year’s TRACS Annual Conference was at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California. TRACS is the organization that provides accreditation for SAMSUNG            PIU and the annual conference is a valuable time for us to interact with other TRACS schools and TRACS officials, find out what is happening in the US education communities, attend valuable workshops and get some PIU-TRACS business done face to face in real time (rather than email). PIU VP of administration, Nino Pate, and I attended this year. This was one of the better conferences I have attended and I especially thought the workshops on building and working with governing boards were especially helpful. Of course the accommodations were very nice and included the spectacular view in the pictures here that were taken from the window of our room.


Here are a couple pictures of the hotel taken from the Seaport Village as Nino and I walked to find a place to eat dinner on Halloween evening. Not sure what the UFO in the middle of the picture is.

And a banquet on the final evening. Sorry no pictures of desserts this year. I didn’t see any desserts at any of the meals!
