OBUG Image

The Ohio Banner Users Group (OBUG) Conference + PowerCampus Conference was a great event! 


The conference on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 was hosted by Kent State University.  The Ohio Banner Users Group welcomed PowerCampus users to the conference. 

Ohio Banner Users Group (OBUG) is a consortium of twenty-six private and public colleges in Ohio. This year the Banner member schools were joined by four Ohio PowerCampus schools for a full day of  workshops and networking opportunities.  OBUG continues to offer an inexpensive opportunity to learn helpful tips about Banner (and now PowerCampus), network with other functional users, update skills, participate in useful discussions, and interact with innovative vendors.
