North East North American Federation

Spring 2016 RFP Conference Process

 Dear NENA Members,

We are seeking a location for our 4th annual (2016) Research Conference in the North side of the NorthEast of North America.

 

This regional research conference offers an opportunity for junior faculty to develop research skills as they obtain feedback during the presentation. In addition it is an excellent chance for professional development and networking exposure.

Our goal is to make this conference a reasonable alternative, for institutions that cannot afford to send all faculty members to the ICHRIE Summer Conference, thus we want to keep the registration fee as close to $100 per person as possible and the room rate as close to $100 per night. The conference is usually 1 ½ days (Saturday full day and Sunday the half day) over the weekend in late March. However, 2016 this will need to be the weekend of April 1 due to the religious holidays.

See the attached NENA Conference Proposal Form and Process

Sincerely,

Annette Graham and Kirsten Tripodi
