ACUI (Association of College Unions International) will hold its 2013 conference right here in St. Louis in March, and MMA will be a major player in it. Gene Mackey and John Burse will be giving an architectural walking tour on Sunday, March 10 which will culminate in a visit to our new office at the historic Cupples 9 building. Principal John Burse will also be presenting a case study of the transformation of the Memorial Student Center (MSC) at the university of Wisconsin-Stout with Darrin Witucki, director of the student center. Senior Associate Merrilee Hertlein will lead a discussion on the “best practices” comments written by ACUI members on Mackey Mitchell’s “expo graffiti wall” at last year’s conference.
From March 10–14 the ACUI community will gather to “Discover New Perspectives” in St. Louis. Delegates will engage in dialogue within our community through networking and programs tailored to students, emerging professionals, and senior leaders. Educational sessions and keynote speakers will allow attendees to share knowledge and gain new perspectives on current trends and issues important to the profession.
