Plan to attend the National Council of University Research Administrator’s (NCURA) Region IV spring meeting. NCURA advances the field of research administration through education and professional development programs, the sharing of knowledge and experience, and by fostering a professional, collegial, and respected community. We will be offering food, music, and fun to complement an outstanding program of workshops, concurrent sessions, discussion groups, case studies, and a keynote address from Dr. Peter Lichtenberg, the director of both the Institute of Gerontology and the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute at Wayne State University. Mark your calendar and prepare to immerse yourself in educational programs, networking opportunities, and festivities. Registration will be open in early spring, 2013. Check out the NCURA Region IV website for more details. Note that you do not need to be a member of NCURA to attend.
