Join us in historic Prairie View, Texas as one of the country’s first Historically Black Colleges and Universities acts as host to the 27th anniversary of the Emerging Recreational Sports Leaders Conference! Prairie View A&M University will host this amazing professional development opportunity from January 17–19, 2019.

In 2019, 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 27th anniversary of the ERSL Conference in the Lone Star State! This year’s theme will focus on exploring “The Power of You.”

Registration for this event is now open. Learn more about this storied event by visiting the NIRSA website.
