WHY ATTEND?

Hands on Training

Become a Sophia expert with hands on user training across numerous aspects of the Sophia system. In addition to info-packed sessions led by Wellspring staff, attendees are able to schedule time for face to face 1:1 meetings with Wellspring team members.

Networking with Fellow Users

The User Group provides many opportunities to network with colleagues from other institutions. This is a time to find peers to call on during times of need, discuss how other institutions are defining processes and using Sophia, and to share your own ideas or tips and tricks that you have learned.

Structure

This year, Thursday, September 29 will be a day of presentations, networking and training sessions. We will end the day with a FREE dinner at a location to be determined very soon. Friday, September 30 will be dedicated to 1:1 training sessions with Wellspring experts.

THURSDAY SESSIONS agenda

While Friday is reserved for hour long 1:1 sessions, Thursday will be packed with sessions around a variety of useful topics. This year’s user group includes parallel tracks, to provide sessions serving a wide range of attendees, from Sophia newbies to experienced experts and power users.
