Save the Date! NORDP 2020 will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa in San Antonio, TX, May 17-20, 2020.

12th Annual NORDP Research Development Conference

May 17-20, 2020 • San Antonio, TX

#NORDP2020 is shaping up to be as big as Texas! With the sold out success of NORDP2019, we're repeating some of the things that made last year so great - including  more than 20 hours of extra content and presentations for RD professionals. This year features

  • Conference registration includes all activities (no separate pre-conference to justify), making the conference more inclusive for all attendees.
  • Two-hour sessions will allow presenters and participants to discuss a topic in greater detail and engage the content more fully.
  • Lightning Talks: five-minute presentations that allow individuals to share new and creative ideas for fostering research development.

Mark your calendars! This year’s early bird rate is $640, making NORDP 2019 an affordable 3-day conference (comparable to other professional conferences). These new formats, in addition to more networking time, should make NORDP 2020 the biggest Research Development Conference ever!

Stay tuned to the blog for further details on NORDP2020.
