What Attendees Are Saying

Attending at least one AIR Forum Workshop is essential to my Forum experience. Spending a few hours studying a topic in-depth allows me to return to my campus with knowledge that I can immediately put to use.

The AIR Annual Forum is a wonderful place to learn new strategies, tools, and information. I've attended seven Forums over the past ten years, and without fail, I've returned home with valuable and useful information. I highly recommend it!

The networking opportunities are just as rich as the outstanding program content. I utilize the networks I develop at the Forum all year.
