PHILADELPHIA, March 02, 2016 — Today, TargetX announced its 9th Annual CRM Users Summit, scheduled to take place July 17-19 in San Diego, California. The conference offers in-depth product trainings, client-led sessions and other opportunities for attendees to share their experiences and best practice advice for building relationships with students, alumni, and other key constituencies. The conference is open to current clients as well as colleges investigating CRM solutions for their own campus.
“Every year TargetX creates more direct, more far-reaching ways for our clients to truly connect with and support students, from a revolutionary mobile application process to private, mobile social communities with dramatic yield benefits,” says CEO of TargetX, Sasha Peterson. “What makes this conference so special is that every year we hear directly from our clients, offer hands-on trainings and roll up our sleeves alongside them to best serve their students.”
This year’s Summit will feature keynote speaker Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of the New York Times bestseller How to Raise an Adult, a provocative manifesto that draws on research, conversations with admissions officers, educators and employers, as well as her own insights as a mother and as a university dean to highlight the ways in which overparenting harms children, their stressed-out parents, and society at large. Lythcott-Haims spent a decade as the Dean of Freshmen at Stanford University, a position she created in 2002. Almost 20,000 undergraduates matriculated on her watch, and in 2010 she received the university’s Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award. To her students she was affectionately known as “Dean Julie.”
“I’m very excited to speak at the TargetX CRM Summit, an audience of higher ed professionals who are committed to serving the development of thriving young adults,” notes Lythcott-Haims. “We should all be interested in young adults being more and more capable of doing for themselves each year. We have before us a generation of adults who are failing to launch, who are underdeveloped in their ability to handle the stuff of life.”
The annual conference brings together admissions, marketing, advancement and information technology professionals from colleges around the country to learn how to make better use of the company’s products and services and to share their successes and challenges with colleagues.
