2020 NERA VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

2020 NERA VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

“Say it Loud, Say it Clear: Communicating Results and Driving Change”

We are working hard to ensure we bring you a virtual experience that meets your expectations for the usual high quality NERA content, as well as brings us together as a community, despite not being able to be together in-person in Trumbull this year. Below are answers to questions we’ve been receiving from some of you about this year’s virtual conference.

Will the dates of the conference stay the same?
Yes, we will meet during the regularly scheduled NERA dates: October 14th – 16th. We will have a half day on Wednesday (starting after lunch), a full day on Thursday, and a half day on Friday (ending before lunch). All sessions will be scheduled in Eastern Time Zone.
 
How much does it cost to attend the virtual conference?
Thanks to our generous sponsors, we are able to cover all conference costs through sponsorship dollars and Membership dues. Thus, NERA 2020 is complimentary with a NERA membership. More information about purchasing or renewing your membership may be found here
 
What do I need to attend the virtual conference?
You need a good internet connection, your device or computer, and a valid registration. All sessions will be on Zoom via the Whova platform - further details and guidance on how to navigate the virtual platform will be provided in the upcoming weeks.
 
How do I register for the virtual conference?
You will receive more information about how to access the Whova platform and register for the conference in the upcoming weeks.
 
What if I am not available during the virtual conference dates?
The content will be available on-demand following the conference for all NERA members.
 
Should I expect conference sessions to be different this year?
You can expect many sessions you see during a typical NERA conference: we have a series of invited sessions and workshops across each of the days, sessions accepted from the call for proposals, GSIC sessions, President’s address, an awards meeting, business meeting, and social times.
 
We hope you’re as excited for this year’s conference as we are. We will release the formal program and more details in the coming weeks. Stay tuned and let us know what questions you have.
