NEAIR 37th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
November 13 - 16, 2010
Saratoga Hilton, Saratoga Springs, New York
NEAIR members can once again expect another exceptional conference experience as the program proposals reviewed and accepted by your peers will showcase the exemplary work going on throughout the North East. This includes yet another strong slate of pre-conference workshops (on Saturday and/or Sunday) for those seeking more intensive training in, or exposure to: assessment and accreditation; software applications; statistics; and analytical approaches to better understanding data.

Opening plenary speaker Scott Jaschik, co-founder and editor of Inside Higher Education, will officially kick-off the conference on Sunday evening, followed by the traditionally well-appointed NEAIR opening banquet. Monday morning's program will feature plenary speaker Dr. Michael F. Middaugh, Associate Provost for Institutional Effectiveness at the University of Delaware and Chair of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, followed by breakout sessions featuring the good work of the NEAIR membership. Monday's Annual business lunch is the venue for welcoming our new leadership team, thanking our past team, and…well…, taking care of business.
New this Year will be a mid-day Monday feature entitled "Data & Dessert” – an afternoon dessert and coffee break where the Best Visual Award (for a poster presentation) will be celebrated over a special treat. Finally, and as always, a number of Special Interest Group (SIG) sessions will be in the offing over the course of the program.
The conference will close Tuesday mid-morning where you can enjoy the Lakeside Farms Applefest coffee break, closing plenary speaker Dr. Randy Lee Swing, Executive Director for the Association of Institutional Research, and the much anticipated annual NEAIR raffle.
We trust you will find the 2010 Saratoga Conference an unparalleled learning and networking experience, as the Local Arrangements Team works deftly behind the scenes to make your entire stay comfortable. We look forward to seeing YOU, in Saratoga!
