Next Generation Chief Business Officers (NGCBO) Program


SACUBO will offer a one-day workshop for those wishing to take a step forward in their careers. The Next Generation Chief Business Officers (NGCBO) program will be held on Sunday, April 7.

Higher education is facing dramatic turnover in the workplace as boomers embark on retirement. CBOs are not immune to this situation and many are concerned about their ability to identify and/or recruit their successors. The NGCBO program was created by SACUBO in response to this challenge.

NGCBO focuses on the key aspects of the CBO position and what it takes to be successful in today’s challenging environment. This program incorporates activities that help attendees understand how they function best and how their approach in the workplace impacts others. As with all SACUBO events, the networking value for attendees is a huge plus.

Registration Fee

One-day registration is only $300.

The registration fee for the one-day NGCBO program is only $300, and attendees will be able to earn up to 7.5 CPEs for the program.
