The Call for Proposals is now open for the NCURA Region III Spring Meeting taking place April 24-28, 2021, at the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans, LA!

Meeting Theme: “Milestones: Celebrating Growth and Progress in Research Administration”

We’ve come a long way since our first regional meeting, which took place in Athens, GA in 1971. The 2021 meeting marks Region III’s 50th Anniversary – an exciting milestone for our organization! Our profession has grown tremendously, from an oft-forgotten administrative function to a full-blown career path with its own Master’s programs.

We are looking forward to celebrating all of our milestones together at the NCURA Annual Spring Meeting, April 24-28, 2021 at the Hilton Riverside in New Orleans!

If you would like to share your expertise or unique perspective on a topic, don’t miss your chance to submit a proposal! Topics of interest for entry-level, managerial, and senior research administrators are all welcome.

If you are a new presenter looking for a co-presenter, or just have a great idea and would like help finding a co-presenter, please indicate this on the form under “Co-Presenter Names & Institutions.” Our Presenter Liaison will assist you in identifying a co-presenter.
