Upcoming Professional Development

Converging on Consistent Room Reporting

To do better peer-to-peer comparisons of spaces, we need to come to a shared understanding of what spaces are called. In this session Christy Miranda Perez from UCF will go over how they implement the FICM space standards on their campus and will talk about what the space definitions mean. Don Merritt will explain how UCF uses that data to do strategic and lifecycle planning for AV systems across all campuses. Please join us on Wednesday, April 24th at 1 pm ET for a Connecting in the Cloud session, “Converging on Consistent Room Reporting.”
