The 2018 NIRSA Annual Conference & Campus Rec and Wellness Expo will provide an opportunity for us to gather as a community to learn, celebrate accomplishments, and network.

This year’s conference theme is “Elevate Your Path.” Located in mile high Denver, Colorado, we will be literally elevating our paths. We are looking for program proposals that  deliver educational opportunities which will help inspire participants to return to their campuses with new knowledge, skills, and connections to take their collegiate recreation programs, services, and their careers to new heights!

Please join us for this annual event that showcases the best of collegiate recreation. Please take some time to review the information on this web page and in the Prospective Presenter Guide. We look forward to receiving your program proposal!
