P Cards Overview

PDG P-Cards Conference | February 8-11, 2015



18th National PDG P-Cards on Campus Conference
February 8-11, 2015 - Wyndham San Antonio Riverwalk - San Antonio, TX


The 18th National P-Cards on Campus Conference is an event built by Higher Education, for Higher Education. We’ve planned this event around all skill levels – card programs from beginning to advanced. PDG has brought together the top experts to present to colleges and universities about how to take your program to the next level. If you’re just starting your program, avoid reinventing the wheel, and learn from schools that have already made their programs successful.

"I attended my first conference in February and I truly see the value in the relationships that I've built with other higher education colleagues and the knowledge I brought back with me to my University. After attending your conference, I was fully charged to change our current program..."

2015 Conference Session Information


NEW!  We’re introducing a new HEAP Con Track! (Higher Education Accounts Payables)

We've heard what you have to say and are thrilled to be offering the HEAP Con track at the 2014 event. This track of breakout sessions will focus exclusively on Accounts Payable content, discussions, and issues. We will be bringing in vendors with AP solutions for you!

Benchmarking Survey

Again this year, we will be collecting information from schools about the size, technology used, and office responsibilities. We are asking that all purchasing, controller and procurement offices complete this survey online at http://www.prodev.com/p-cards-on-campus-heap-con-benchmarking-survey/.  The deadline for submitting the survey is Friday, January 31st, 2014 so the results can be compiled for the Conference. The results will be presented on Tuesday, February 11th, 2014, at 9:15 am at the P-Cards Conference – make sure you are in attendance as you will not want to miss this relevant presentation. We will be emailing the results so that you see what other schools across the nation are doing in their offices and how you fit in. If you have any questions please email info@prodev.com.
