By attending the NIRSA Annual Conference your boss can see firsthand the crucial role your department plays in recruitment, retention, and the overall student experience.
Countless attendees, however, have experienced the thrill of learning from speakers, students, and colleagues—or of sharing new information as their institution’s representative at an event—only to return home to business-as-usual. This can be especially true when a boss doesn’t have a background in campus recreation, making the prospect of introducing innovations or gaining support for new initiatives even more challenging.
Returning attendees know that the NIRSA Annual Conference is not confined to the concerns of just one department on campus. Attending alongside a colleague can be help you enthused and productive long after the Annual Conference is over.
By attending the NIRSA Annual Conference your department administrator will gain a deeper appreciation for the value your programs, services, and employees contribute to your campus community. NIRSA’s selection of executive-level educational sessions and celebrated invited speakers will be sure to give them plenty of exciting takeaways to bring home too.
