Welcome from the Co-Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

We are honored to serve as the Co-chairs for the 19th Annual Financial Research Administration Conference (FRA). This year's conference will be held in sunny Orlando, FL at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista Hotel. The program committee has been working hard to assemble a strong offering of sessions for every position level across all Post-Award and some Pre-Award topics. These sessions will be represented in the following tracks: Departmental, Federal, Financial Compliance, International, Medical/Hospital, Organization Development, Post Award, Predominantly Undergraduate Institutions, and Responsible Conduct of Research. The FRA conference will be held on March 5th and 6th with a combined workshop day on March 7th with the Pre-Award Research Administration Conference, which will be held on March 8th and 9th. 

The theme for the 2018 Financial Research Administration Conference is, In Support of Research: Re-Discover Your Passion. It can be easy to by discouraged with the recent tone of discussions in Washington regarding funding. As a community we can instead choose to be inspired by our profession and the role we play in research which lead to our theme for this year's conference. Through networking, education and reflection at the 2018 Financial Research Administration Conference we hope you will be able bring back the tools to re-invigorate your team and/or colleagues in your offices. 

We are delighted to announce that our keynote presenter will be Eric C. Haseltine. Eric is a TED talk presenter and has served as a former Vice President of Walt Disney Imagineering, is a former CTO for the U.S. intelligence community and former Director for Research at the NSA. Eric's discoveries about the human brain have helped individuals see past their "blind spots" in a quick fix world and instead focus on long-term thinking that can  create explosive success/opportunities.

We hope to see you all in sunny Orlando, FL for the 19th Annual Financial Research Administration Conference where you will; In Support of Research: Re-Discover Your Passion.

Sincerely,

Umila Bajaj, University of Virginia
