BYU’s Office Professionals Advisory Committee and Human Resource Services have announced the 2006-2007 OPAC schedule of events.

Brad Wilcox will be the conference keynote speaker, with general sessions by Newell Dayley and Dale and Nancy Murphy. The conference provides opportunities for personal and professional growth, and shows appreciation for excellence exhibited by professional personnel at all levels of office support.
