Last week UNB ITS hosted CANHEIT 2015 and it was a huge success! Thanks to the many volunteers from ITS along with support from UNB Conference Services, we were able to host this year’s CANHEIT conference which brought together hundreds of Higher Ed. IT professionals from coast to coast.

The sessions during the day provided our attendees the perfect way to learn and share experiences, but the fun didn’t stop when the sun went down.

Social events kept the conference lively throughout the evening with good music, good laughs, and good food. With great prizes like a Protocol Quadcopter drone being won each night at the CANHEIT Afterburner, we always enjoyed seeing Terry Nikkel eagerly hoping someone would bring their prize to the next morning’s announcements.

But, I think what everyone from UNB, as well as the ECN, had the most excitement for was when Terry accepted the CUCCIO 2015 Collaboration Award on behalf of NB/PEI ECN Shared Services.

The ECN Shared Services has been a huge undertaking which has led to more effective and productive ways to share services between the institutes involved.
