Skyward user’s learned more about their software systems, networked with other customers and Skyward staff, and got more answers to their questions during the 2007 User Group conferences. Turnouts at the conferences were better than ever as everyone pitched in to ensure that each conference was a huge success.
In 2007, Skyward saw an increase in attendance for virtually every one of the seven User Group Conferences held throughout the United States. Total attendance for the 2007 Skyward User Groups rose by nearly 10%. Almost 4,850 Skyward users took advantage of this unique opportunity to further their professional development.
Networking with other Skyward users from your state is always one of the best benefits of any Skyward User Group Conference. According to Wendy Nasgovitz, Tech/Human Resources Administrator at Kohler School District, Wisconsin, “I enjoy coming to the Skyward Conference. I am able to network with other users and learn great tips and tricks.”
With all conferences combining to offer over 550 custom sessions, no conference attendee ever walks away without learning even more about how Skyward can make their job easier. “The convention is such a fountain of knowledge. I’ve used Skyward for several years now and I ALWAYS learn something new (or remember a feature I forgot about!),” said Karen Warner, records clerk at Huron Valley Schools, Michigan.
Not only were the State User Group conference turnouts higher, but so were the numbers for Skyward’s National Conference in Dallas, Texas. Between 2006 and 2007, Skyward saw a 42% increase in attendance at this annual event.
With attendance on the rise and more and more districts using Skyward across the United States, Skyward is excited to announce that additional conferences will be held in Idaho, Kansas and Pennsylvania in 2008.

Each year, the number of attendees at the User Group conferences continues to grow. Skyward is continually working with the State Steering Committees to make sure that each conference is a success and even more importantly, a place to learn for our customers. We want to ensure that you get everything out of the conference that you need so you can take it back to your job and apply it.
We look forward to seeing you at the conferences in 2008!
