Region II is seeking institutions to host workshops in 2019

Workshop topics now available include:

Region’s II Professional Development Workshops are an outstanding new resource serving the specific needs of our research and sponsored programs professions.

Region II’s workshops:

  • provide detailed information that participants will be able to use immediately
  • focus on current general and specific topics in research and sponsored projects administration
  • are presented by recognized leaders in research and sponsored projects administration from Region II
  • foster local networks of colleagues
  • are cost-effective, one-day events offered in locales where participants will not require overnight travel

Hosting entails local scheduling and coordination, assistance with registration, pre-event photocopying, and parking arrangements. The workshop requires a conference room accommodating up to 75 participants at round tables, projector and Internet access, and ample space for the presenters to interact with the audience. Lunch is included, available either nearby or in the presentation room.

Host organizations receive two free workshop registrations or one free conference registration to the Region II Fall Meeting ($350.00 value) if the region does not incur a financial loss for any workshop.

The Region II PDC provides the workshop and its presenters, manages registration and promotion, and works closely with the host institution.
