The application period to submit proposals for Research Sessions is closed.
Designed around a general topic area for a medium sized audience (50-200) of conference attendees, these sessions are structured to provide opportunities for audience members to pose questions to the group and receive varied answers from fellow session attendees.
The Program Committee has preselected the following 10 topic areas as Roundtables for the 2020 Conference.
- Facility Management
- Health & Wellbeing
- Intramural Sports
- Outdoor Recreation
- Risk Management
- Small Programs
- Sport Clubs
Two additional topics will be selected during the fall term based on emerging issues in collegiate recreation.
If you are interested in applying to facilitate a roundtable session, please review the information below and
Roundtable Organizers & Leaders
The Program Committee is recruiting NIRSA members to organize and lead the selected roundtables at conference. Each roundtable will have members filling the following positions:
An organizer who works in the weeks prior to the Annual Conference to solicit feedback from the membership on key issues for discussion and constructs an overall outline of topics for the session.
A moderator who actively leads the roundtable session at the conference, potentially with the assistance of other members facilitating discussion in smaller groups within the session.
A recorder who takes notes of key discussion points during the roundtable to distribute to members after the conference via the NIRSA web site and related Community of Practice online resource pages.
Complete the Roundtable Staff Interest Form to indicate your interest and to be alerted when the formal application for roundtable positions becomes available this fall.
