Connect with colleagues — before, during, and after the conference

Socials are at the heart of many great networking opportunities that are available to attendees.

In addition to the many socials hosted by NIRSA, members can also host independent socials.

Honor Award Banquet

If you plan to attend the 2015 Honor Award Banquet on Thursday, April 2, secure your ticket and table reservation — before you even set foot in Grapevine.

Online reservations have been extended to Friday, March 13

Once everyone in your party has registered for Conference (up to ten seats per table), fill out the reservation form with everyone’s name, school, and meal preference. Send the form to billing@nirsa.org. We’ll seat you at the best table available and send you a confirmation.

Onsite, you will receive your meal ticket and table number with your pre-registration materials. Keep your meal ticket safe until the Honor Award Banquet!

Table reservations will still be available onsite at the NIRSA Registration Booth. However, seats are first-come first-serve, so get your reservation form in as soon as you can!

Independent Socials

Independent socials are an important part of the NIRSA Annual Conference & Recreational Sports Expo experience.

These exciting socials provide attendees with great opportunities to network in smaller groups.

NIRSA regions, states, vendors, and individual institutions have all hosted exciting independent socials at past NIRSA Annual Conferences. And so we invite you to consider hosting an independent social at NIRSA 2015 where the charming town of Grapevine will provide the perfect background for any event!

The evening of Wednesday, April 1 is an ideal time to host or attend an independent social since no other NIRSA 2015 events are scheduled then.

If you’re interested in planning an independent social, or would like assistance with recommended venues, please contact NIRSA’s Assistant Director of Event Management, Sierra Smith.
