A Personal Welcome

Dear Colleagues:

NCURA 62nd Annual Meeting - A Live, Virtual Experience Open for the World

The AM62 Program Committee is finalizing preparations for the upcoming Virtual Experience, The Power of You."  The changes we are experiencing within our institutions make the connections, sharing, and information that is the NCURA Annual Meeting more important than ever. In response to this need, the Annual Meeting is open to the full research administration community...you do not need to be a member of NCURA to register for the conference. We are all in this together and we want to ensure that this important education and networking opportunity is available for the full community. In addition, special discount pricing for teams will be available so everyone can join in!

We will begin with pre-conference workshops on Friday, August 7th and Monday, August 10th from 1-5pm EDT. The 62nd Annual Meeting will run Tuesday, August 11 - Friday, August 14 from 1-5pm EDT each day with different activities and events beginning at 5:15pm EDT each evening. Your Global track will be hosted within 3 time zones in addition to the U.S., so your colleagues in Asia, Australia and Europe will have programming that fits their schedule. 

This virtual experience will offer the same great in-depth learning opportunities with over 150+ concurrent sessions, discussion groups and 1/2 day live workshops to choose from. Participants will be able to connect with presenters and their fellow participants through chat and zoom discussions throughout the conference. For all registrants, over 100 hours of content will be offered on-demand following the meeting. So, don't worry about missing a session that overlaps with another!

We have an excellent keynote presenter lined up, you won't want to miss, exclusively presenting live at 1:00pm EDT for our AM62 registrants, on Tuesday. Our Keynote Presenter is a Capitol Hill Correspondent for NBC News, a veteran of presidential politics, a regular contributor to NBC Nightly NewsTODAYMSNBC as well as Meet the Press. We have other surprises for you, and we are excited to have you with us in your new virtual home for the Annual Meeting!

Your NCURA Community is always here for you. Join us for NCURA's 62nd Annual Meeting, The Power of You! We will support research...together
