Dear [insert name of manager],

I’d like to ask for your approval to attend regoUniversity on April 22-25, 2018 at the Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, VA.

This is the single most attended Clarity PPM training, networking, and knowledge-sharing event of its kind, with over 200 PPM community members, representing 100+ companies and institutions. Clarity PPM product experts and Agile and PMO/PPM thought leaders are on-hand to share best practices, new innovations, and offer hands-on training, while hosting over 75 classes, labs, live-demos, one-on-one technical meetings, and round-table sessions.

The event offers 4 days of best practice based training on Administration, PPM Roadmaps, Jaspersoft Report Dev and Business Intelligence, GEL scripting, Portlets, Integration, Data Modeling, Project, Portfolio, Financial, Resource Management, and more. Here’s the Class Schedule.

This is a great opportunity for me to enhance my technical skills and expand my expertise in CA PPM, business analysis, and best practices in all the most significant PPM disciplines, as well as learn new ideas for improving our business processes.

Because this event is not-for-profit, Rego keeps the registration cost as low as possible. To provide a comparison, other education events of this duration typically cost over $3,600. Here is an approximate breakdown of conference costs:
