ARUCC turns 40! Let's celebrate!

The Association of Registrars of the Universities of Canada was created in 1964 in response to the professional needs of student administrative services personnel in universities. In 1974 the Association's name was changed to the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada to reflect the increasing role of the colleges in this professional field and in the activities of the Association.

Fascinating and relevant keynote speakers!

We've planned a stimulating and insightful program which includes keynote addresses from three interesting Canadians - each prominent for their expertise in a different subject area:

On Monday, Michael Geist, a law professor at the University of Ottawa, specializing in Internet and e-commerce law, speaks on the topic of Privacy and Expectations.

On Tuesday, Neil Aitchison gives insight into "The Power of Laughter". In addition to being Conestoga College's first graduate, Neil is an actor, former broadcast executive and radio personality.

On Wednesday, in celebration of its 40th Anniversary, ARUCC is pleased to present Stephen Lewis to give the closing keynote address of the 2004 Conference. Stephen Lewis has had extensive experience as a politician, diplomat and humanitarian. A passionate advocate of the rights and needs of children, he was appointed Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in 2001.
