Happy Research Administrator Day!
September 25, 2017, marks the third annual Research Administrator Day!
Thank you, Region IV Research Administrators, for all you do to support your institutions.
Regardless of the setting we work in - a hospital or institution of higher education, a nonprofit organization or for-profit company, or a local or federal government agency - as research administrators, we nourish investigation, fuel discovery, and grow the profession. We serve a vital role in our institution's research mission.
Today, let us recognize the important work we do to help our institutions plan, propose, negotiate, and manage sponsored programs.
Today, take a moment to celebrate!!
NCURA July "Drive to $100K"
NCURA is very excited to announce we will begin soliciting scholarship applications later this year, after we reach our initial $100K goal.
During the month of July, NCURA will launch a targeted campaign to reach our initial $100K goal by the Annual Meeting. The "Drive to $100K" will provide you a chance contribute to this tremendous cause, as well as win great prizes and get a jump on the Annual Regional Competition that wraps up at the Annual Meeting.
For every $1 donated online in July, you will receive a chance to win amazing prizes, including:
In addition, online donations in July will count toward Region IV in the Annual Meeting's Regional Donation Competition, as long as you indicate in your online donation you want to credit Region IV. This is a great way to help us be competitive in the competition even if you won't be attending AM59.
2017 is the year NCURA will reach our first goal and we hope you'll be part of this accomplishment by participating in the "Drive to $100K" this July!
