Update, July 3: This article has been updated with new deadlines for submitting proposals for Lightning Talks and the Research Hour.

After some delay, we are excited to announce that you can now officially submit presentation proposals for the 2019 NIRSA Annual Conference & Campus Rec and Wellness Expo! NIRSA 2019 will take place February 16–19 in Boston, Massachusetts at the Hynes Convention Center.

The deadline to submit a preconference proposal is Monday, June 18. You can submit a Concurrent Education Session through Monday, June 25. You have a little more time to submit a Poster Program, Fitness Forum, Lightning Talk, or Research Hour proposal—all are due Friday, August 17. If you have interesting research or a creative practice to share with colleagues, please consider submitting a proposal today!

You can find the presentation proposal link, as well as complete guidelines to help create your presentation proposal on the 2019 NIRSA Annual Conference Welcome Presenters page. And make sure to keep an eye on the NIRSA News and on the #NIRSA2019 hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for all the latest Annual Conference Information.

With NIRSA 2019 happening earlier in the year than past conferences, the timeline for proposals is a little tight. Don’t delay in submitting your proposal.
