Newcomers Opportunities

Whether you are new to NEAIR, or new to IR, we welcome you to the North East Association for Institutional Research Annual Conference!  We hope you take advantage of the following opportunities for newcomers:
Navigating NEAIR: A Newcomer’s Toolkit
New to NEAIR? Meet fellow new members and get insider tips from NEAIR leadership on how to make the most of your membership. Also learn about professional development opportunities available through NEAIR, applying for conference and research grants, volunteer positions, and how to connect with a community of IR professionals from throughout the northeast region. New members will also have the opportunity to win some great raffle prizes. Advanced registration required.
Cost: Free
When: Sunday 6:00 - 7:00pm
Register online through conference registration.
Newcomer 411 SIG
Lead by NEAIR Newcomer to IR Workshop presenters, this Monday morning SIG will give you some great resources as well as time to meet other NEAIR members new to IR.  There will be an opportunity to hear about each other's challenges as well as a Q&A for those tough situations at work.

Conference Sessions  
The conference mobile app (Whova) will be keyword searchable for sessions particularly appropriate for newcomers.  Be sure to download Whova and search "newcomer" to find these sessions.
