Three New Initiatives to Launch

A User Group for Electronic Transcript Processing, a development Workgroup for the PDF Transcript, and a development Workgroup for Transcript Acknowledgement are all launching at the Fall 2008 Member Summit.

Members and Non-Members Welcome at Summit

For the Electronic Transcript User Group meeting, members are encouraged to submit issues, problems, and requested enhancements to the PESC office prior to the Summit. All issues will be compiled and then presented to the User Group for review. All issues from the high school, college, XML and EDI transcripts are welcome. User Groups will serve as the development vehicles for future releases once a standard (v 1.0) has been established. PESC is pleased to offer participation in User Groups free of charge for Members of PESC. Non-members are now able to join the User Group at a discounted rate than full membership in PESC. Anyone non-member interested in participating should contact PESC Executive Director Michael Sessa at 202.261.6516 or at michael.sessa@pesc.org.

For the PDF Transcript Workgroup, and the Transcript Acknowledgement Workgroup, please review their respective Letters of Intent for more information.
