About the Conference

The Alberta Services for Students Conference (ASSC) serves as a networking and professional development opportunity for student services professionals and student leaders throughout the province. Held annually in May, this event sees post-secondary student services professionals meet and discuss issues and strategies benefiting students. The Provincial Planning Committee maintains this website and works annually with the host institution's site committee to plan an economical and beneficial event. Past conferences have drawn participants from across Canada and the Northwestern United States.
