In 2006, the NCURA Board of Directors unanimously agreed to offer a Pre-Award Research Administration (PRA) Conference in the summer. The vision for this conference is to create an annual PRA Conference complementing the existing FRA (Financial Research Administration) annual conference.
This conference travels to a new location each year. The conference had 600+ participants in 2013.
NCURA members enjoy a 20% discounted registration fee, and the conference is open to all members of the research administration community. Conference registration for PRA is available in the spring each year at www.ncura.edu.
The PRA conference begins with a day of workshops and senior level seminars which are a supplemental training program open to all registrants of the PRA Conference. This in depth and targeted training and professional development includes offerings for those new to the profession through to our most senior level members.
PRA offers concurrent sessions, open forums, discussion groups, workshops and exhibits from our vendor partners who support pre-award activities.Our sponsor and exhibitor partners join us, and there is a reception, dinner groups, volunteer opportunities to network with your colleagues.
Mark your calendars to join us March 18-20, 2014 in San Francisco! Check out the 2014 preliminary conference program
