Welcome to NCURA Region IV!
What an honor it is to serve Region IV! It is a great pleasure to give back to a group that has given me so much throughout my Research Administration career. What an awesome group, always willing to give tips and helpful information to make us a success!
Hopefully you had the opportunity to attend the Regional meeting held early May in Kansas City. It was a fun filled conference, bursting with a packed agenda, beautiful fountains, BBQ and jazz. The theme was Exchanging Talents through Guidance, which highlighted how thankful we all are to those who volunteer, mentor, and give back to the region in so many ways. Thank you!!! Next year we will be in Madison, WI on April 23-26, 2017.
The Mentoring Our Own (MOO) Program is starting its fourth year. If you have not looked into this valuable program, please check out the information on our website.
Remember, the 2nd annual National Research Administrator Day is coming up, September 25, 2017. What will you do to celebrate? Make it special and help
spread the word to recognize OUR day.
