Dear Attendees

On behalf of the NIRSA 2015 Program Committee and NIRSA 2015 Host Committee, we’d like to invite you to the 66th NIRSA Annual Conference & Recreational Sports Exposition!

Join 2,500 of your colleagues between March 30 and April 2, 2015 in Grapevine, Texas, as we continue to harmonize the values of collegiate recreation and work together to move these values forward.

Review this year’s education session topics (complete session descriptions should be posted by January 2015). If you’re ready to plan out your week, check out the full overview schedule — don’t forget to look at our preconference offerings! And be sure to review the amenities of the conference property and host hotel, the Gaylord Texan.

This will be the second year NIRSA conference attendees learn and collaborate under one roof. If you joined us at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville last year, you’ll have a good idea of what to expect in the Gaylord Texan — except it’s a bit smaller, making it easier to get from A to B!

Our keynote & invited speakers are prepared to educate and inspire. Alvin Law, an award-winning speaker will share his personal experiences and highlight how hope and strength, when matched with determination and love, can give us all the motivation we need. Paul Wesselmann, “The Ripples Guy,” returns to NIRSA for our closing general session with a “thought-provoking, inspirational call to action.”

The Recreational Sports Exposition is on track to be as big as the heart of Texas. Review the list of exhibitors or learn a little bit more about the energy of the Expo.

Be sure to check out the resources we’ve prepared to help you make the most of your time in Grapevine — including the official NIRSA 2015 Guidebook® App. If you have any questions about NIRSA 2015, please let us know and we’ll help find the answers!

We look forward to seeing you at NIRSA 2015 in Grapevine, Texas.
