2022 Northeast/Southern Section Meeting in Philadelphia

There is 4 inches of snow on the ground, blustery winds and a temperature of 4 degrees F. Even our colleagues in the South are having unprecedented winter weather. Let’s think about Spring, when the earth comes alive again!  It is time for us all to come alive again and to do that we need to reconnect with each other in person!  What better place to reconnect with each other than in Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love. Join your fellow research administrators for this much anticipated learning, sharing and networking opportunity April 3 – 6 for the in-person 2022 Northeast-Southern Section Meeting 

You can register now to attend workshops/concurrent sessions offered in five tracks: Financial and Post Award Administration; Management and Operations; Professional Development; Research Ethics and Compliance; and Sponsors and Agencies.  You can also choose from two SRAI certificate programs to further your professional development - Financial Management or Research Integrity.  Early bird registration ends February 18. 

The meeting will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia Center City located in the heart of Philadelphia’s theater district.  So much to do and so much to see! Make your reservation today – the deadline for room reservations is March 11. 

Keeping with tradition, the Northeast and Southern Sections are offering a travel scholarship to assist a member's attendance at the meeting (This could be YOU!). There will be one (1) award offered in each section worth the cost of the full conference registration (no workshops included). Applicants need NOT be SRA International members at the time of nomination submission but must be paid-in-full members to attend the meeting. Apply today  – the deadline is February 18. 

Keep an eye out for more meeting information in the coming weeks.  In case you need to be reminded:  Your professional self deserves something to look forward to this Spring.  This meeting is just the professional development event to recharge your RA battery, reconnect with colleagues and friends, and take the profession of research administration to a whole new level with SRA International!  We look forward to seeing you in Philly!
