FRIDAY FINALEOn the final day of the conference, participants were divided into groups according to job classification for round-table discussions. Each group, led by a facilitator, had the opportunity to discuss topics related to the department in which they work.Participants commented on how much benefit was obtained from the forum. Having a chance to compare how the same department in a different educational institution operates added a new dimension in how the office professionals viewed their particular function. This was the first year this type of round-table concept was included at the conference. Judging from the positive feedback that was given by the participants, it was a successful venture.The closing speaker, Dr. Robert Orndorf,Associate Director-Recruiting and EmployerRelations at Penn State University, gave apresentation entitled "PIE of Life".
