See You Later Alligator: Closing Out the 2021 SRAI Annual Meeting in New Orleans

Thank you SRAI members for making the 2021 Annual Meeting in New Orleans a success! The events of the past year have been nothing short of challenging, but we all know Research Administrators are resilient. Our program this year was a shining example of just how amazing each of you are. We were able to present 15 workshops and over 100 expert talks through concurrent sessions, learning cafes and quick talks!

We hope that everyone who participated enjoyed the educational offerings, Keynote presentations, the Bayou Bash opening reception and special events.  The human interaction and ability to collaborate face-to-face was priceless. 

We would like to extend a special thank you to our speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, committee members and most importantly the SRAI Headquarters Staff for helping us put together a fantastic meeting. 

If you were unable to join us in person there is still an opportunity to participate in this year’s meeting. The Encore iSession Series runs now in November through April, and provides members with access to the hottest, most relevant and highly rated sessions from our annual meeting.  Registrants of the full Encore Series will have access to all 26 iSessions, plus recordings until May 31.  Don’t miss out, register today! 

We are excited for the 2022 SRAI Annual Meeting in Las Vegas!  We have a wonderful group of Co-Chairs who will be leading the way.  The call for proposals and additional meeting details will be posted soon.  As they say in New Orleans “Let the good times roll.”  Let’s take that advice and all have some fun in Vegas.  We hope to see you there!
