Spring Meeting

NCURA Region III Meeting - 2017

Hilton Savannah Desoto - Savannah, Georgia
May 6-10, 2017


The NCURA Region III 2017 Spring Meeting will be held at the Hilton Savannah Desoto in historic Savannah, Georgia. As our field continues to grow and mature, our talent pipeline likewise needs to expand. How do we bring new talent into the field? How do we retain the best and brightest, and keep those who have enjoyed a full career in research administration engaged as mentors? How do we build cohesive, competent, high performing teams? What does it take to turn today’s candidate into tomorrow’s leader? We will explore these questions and more with this year’s theme: Today’s Candidates, Tomorrow’s Leaders: Get Set, Skill Set, Mind Set.

The meeting will kick off with a slate of full day and half-day workshops, which serve as an excellent supplement to your professional development experience at the meeting. These targeted training and professional development opportunities include something for everyone- from those new to the profession to our most senior level members.

We’ll spend two and a half days enjoying presentations, discussions, and networking opportunities spanning all areas of research administration. Program tracks include Pre-Award, Post-Award, Compliance, Departmental, Predominantly Undergraduate Institutions, Federal, Clinical, General/Professional Development and Research Development. For the more experienced research administrator, a Senior Track has been developed with you in mind. There will be a welcome reception, a Tuesday evening dinner event, networking events, and plenty of opportunities to volunteer. In addition, our sponsor and exhibitor partners will be available to share information on the products and services to support our institutions. Take advantage of this great opportunity to meet and connect with colleagues and create a peer network!
