From the President

NERA’s 2014 conference was held October 22-24 in Trumbull, CT, and in every way represented the very best of our organization. Over 375 researchers came together for scholarship and camaraderie, and the conference program (highlighting “Equity and Excellence in an Era of Accountability”) consisted of paper presentations, keynotes, training sessions, and invited talks on a wide range of topics.  

The 2015 conference is scheduled for October 21-23, 2015, and will focus on the theme of “Interdisciplinary Approaches, Collaborating Minds.”  Planning for 2015 is well underway, and we hope to see you back in Trumbull next October.  In the meantime, watch your email for the next issue of The NERA Researcher as well as notification of upcoming NERA webinars!
