University of Oregon Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) connects UO with regional communities. Through CPE’s mission to produce or aid in the delivery of educational programs for purposes of lifelong learning and professional development, the Conference Services sub-unit provides an important resource to this mission in two ways: first, by providing specialized operational support to academic departments, individual faculty members in their hosting of on-campus events and noncredit workshops, or other auxiliary units (e.g. UO Housing); second, by providing technically-sophisticated and integrated conference management and customer service solutions to externally-facing professional associations for the administration and production of educational conferences and tradeshows (both small and large-scale: 10,000+ attendees)

The IT department is the technological backbone of the Conference Services team, supporting the fulfillment of all contracted services that are critical to the successful operation of events and meetings including, but not limited to the creation of database-driven interactive websites and web applications, databases and systems integrations, administration of databases, and deployment of scalable computer networks at offsite events.

• supervise and train staff to support the technical needs of clients
• travel between 8-30 nights per year to event locations, where you will deploy scalable computer networks, web/database services, and client workstations that you designed.
