SFI Conference 2020

Each spring, Executive Round Table hosts a weekend retreat to celebrate the three pillars of our membership: students, faculty, and industry. This conference features several speakers centralized around one common theme, allowing for a deeper exploration into a singular issue.

SFI allows all ERT members to gather in a more casual environment while continuing the traditional dinner meeting format throughout the weekend. This spring, we will be returning to the Lake Lanier Islands resort for a one-night retreat, and exploring speakers involved in the technology and education sectors. All ERT members are highly encouraged to attend the SFI Conference, while new members are required to attend.


Registration for this spring’s SFI will open in December. Corporate sponsors are asked to register through our SVP of Corporate Sponsorship as attendance to SFI is included in the corporate sponsorship package.


Another part of SFI is the beginning of elections for the coming year; The presidential candidates will give speeches at SFI, signaling the opening of voting. The nominations for the remaining executive board positions will occur after SFI. Installation of the new executive board occurs at the senior sendoff at the end of the semester.
