Dear <Insert Supervisor’s Name>:
I would like to attend the 2021 Higher Education Web Professionals Association (HighEdWeb) Annual Conference Online on Oct. 4-5, and I am writing to ask for your approval and support.
This past year has shown that the world has gone digital. Now, more than ever, the web and digital channels are critical tools to connect with our students, alumni and other stakeholders. A small investment in web and digital training can have an immediate impact on our organization.
The HighEdWeb Annual Conference brings together a diverse community of attendees — from developers to marketers, content strategists to designers, social media managers to advancement pros, and all team members in-between — to learn from top experts and one another. Smart, detailed sessions will address the challenges and opportunities we face every day. By attending, I will gain insights that will help me to improve my productivity and build solutions as we work toward our organization’s goals.
This year, HighEdWeb 2021 will be 100% online, so I can get excellent professional development with no travel and minimal disruption.
HighEdWeb 2021 is also a great value for all attendees and their institutions, allowing me to participate for only $295 ($245 for paid HighEdWeb Association members). This registration cost will give me access to dozens of live presentations by industry experts — and access to on-demand recordings of sessions for two weeks after the event — as well as opportunities to network with other talented digital professionals.
The 2021 HighEdWeb Annual Conference is the premier event for professionals working in the higher education digital space, and I need to attend. I am confident that what I learn at HighEdWeb 2021 this October will make a lasting difference for our organization and provide plenty of new ideas we can use right away. Please let me know if you would like additional information, or visit 2021.highedweb.org for more details. I hope that you will grant my request and allow me the time and resources to attend HighEdWeb 2021.
Thank you for your consideration,
