Dear USDLA Members,

Please plan to join colleagues from across the higher education landscape to learn Presidents Forumabout the regulations being promulgated by the Department of Education and what they will mean to your institution – public or provide, for-profit or non-profit.  This meeting will allow you to hear directly about the proposed intent of these regulations and the compliance challenges they will present as well as the penalties that can be expected for non-compliance.

Our tentative agenda will feature such experts on this subject as:

Julie Bell, NCSL

Judith Eaton, CHEA

Michael Goldstein, Dow Lohnes

Terry Hartle, ACE

Michael Lambert, DETC

Paul Lingenfelter, SHEEO

Russ Poulin, WCET

Isaac Reyes, U.S. Chamber of Commerce

This must attend event will attempt to clarify much of the ambiguous and conflicting information which has been circulating around such critical issues as:

*             Gainful Employment

*             Credit Hour Definition

*             Revenue Sharing

*             State Registration

The goal of the day is to give you accurate and complete information on each of the above topics, with a special emphasis on the state registration requirement – which will impact ALL institutions with online programs.

Here are the details:

Monday, March 28, 2011

10:00a.m. – 2:00p.m.

The Army and Navy Club

901 17th Street NW
