Join us in historic Jackson, Mississippi as one of the country’s first Historically Black Colleges and Universities acts as host to the 25th anniversary of the Emerging Recreational Sports Leaders Conference! Jackson State University will host this amazing professional development opportunity from January 19–21.

In 2017, the Emerging Recreational Sports Leaders Committee will draw on the power of our rich NIRSA past to shape our students and professionals and help them become forces in NIRSA’s future. Conference attendees will have a chance to empower themselves while attending educational sessions, having their resumes reviewed, and creating connections with members of the NIRSA community from all around the country. So commit to making an impact on both yourself and the field of campus recreation by attending the 25th anniversary of the ERSL Conference in Jackson!

Registration for this event will open in the fall. Learn more about this storied event by checking out the 2016 event recap.
