NGSS Spring town-hall meeting

| 10:30am to 12:00pm

Executive sponsors Michelle Brown-Nevers, Andrew Binns, and Thomas Murphy, as well as project owners and project managers for the Next Generation Student Systems (NGSS) project, which is building the new Pennant suite of systems, invite the entire Penn community to a second town-hall meeting from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Thursday, April 30, in Bodek Lounge in Houston Hall.

The senior leaders will discuss the importance of the new Pennant systems to the University and the reasons for embarking on the project, followed by an update on the current development effort on our first release (Pennant Accounts) and information about the planning effort for future releases (Pennant Records and Pennant Aid). The bulk of the meeting time will be devoted to questions from the audience. Whether you are just learning about Pennant and want to know how it will affect you, or you attended a previous presentation or focus group and want to hear about our progress to date, please bring your questions so that everyone can benefit from a wide-ranging discussion! Please share this email with any of your colleagues and co-workers who might be interested in attending.
