The NIRSA Annual Conference & Recreational Sports Expo is the Association’s premier event. Every year, over 2,000 student, professional, and associate members come together for the express purpose of advancing the collegiate recreation profession. For 2015, in the spirit of “Moving Our Values Forward,” NIRSA members will gather March 30–April 2 at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas.

NIRSA 2015 attendees will be able to choose from more than 120 educational sessions and roundtables covering topics from across all areas of campus recreation. They will also have the chance—among numerous opportunities—to attend the annual T-Shirt Exchange, the All Conference Social, and to check out the Expo Hall. Register for NIRSA 2015 today and save by taking advantage of early bird registration rates! The deadline for early bird registration is February 18.

And don’t forget to sign up for one of the many amazing preconference opportunities! Choose from five workshops covering a diverse array of topics from health and wellbeing to officials training to social justice. The NIRSA Foundation Golf Tournament, the NIRSA Foundation Community Service Project, the two facility tours, and the river trip—a guided canoe tour down the Elm Fork of the Trinity River—are also fantastic options!
