Outstanding sessions are in store for NIRSA 2018

The NIRSA Annual Conference Program Committee is excited to report that the educational content for NIRSA 2018 is nearly settled. Two hundred and forty-five lead and co-presenters have been notified of their proposal’s acceptance as part of the 2018 NIRSA Annual Conference program. Two hundred and eighty proposals for educational and roundtable sessions were submitted by subject matter experts from across North America and beyond.

With space and time capacities limiting the Program Committee to accept fewer than 30% of the proposals received, the standard for 2018 sessions is sure to be extremely high. Each proposal was reviewed and scored by a peer review group comprised of subject matter experts from across the Association.

NIRSA would like to thank the scores of members who volunteered their time and expertise to refine the pool for a second committee review of sessions. Final selections were made by the Program Committee who make a concerted effort to provide balance among topic and competency areas.
