CARA East Conference 2021 - UPDATE

It has been quite a while since we have enjoyed the benefits of a CARA East Conference. Given the success of CARA’s recent National Annual Conference in May and the successful embrace of virtual delivery, we wish to rekindle the dynamics of and strengthen our institutional and personal bonds of CARA East by pressing forward with the 2021 CARA East Regional Conference! This regional conference will provide excellent opportunities to share experiences and build upon the strengths of our unique research and research administrative environment in the Atlantic region.  And, there is so much to catch up on since our last CARA East! In order to facilitate attendance, the conference will run on November 29 and 30, 2021, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM EST daily.

CARA Ontario Conference 2021 - UPDATE

There’s fresh, new energy in the air as our various institutions embark upon the return to ‘normal.’ Re-connecting with one another is a vital part of this process, the joys, and benefits of which we experienced at the recent National Annual Conference in May. CARA Ontario is pleased to be offering the 2021 CARA Ontario Conference to keep up the momentum of forging and fostering ties with our colleagues in the province and beyond.  

The theme for this year’s CARA-Ontario conference is: Celebrating Resilience and Evolution in Research Administration.

Since we last met as a province, we’ve grown, become stronger, have learned so much. This is a perfect opportunity to share with one another the many ways we’ve evolved through an array of professional development sessions, workshops, presentations, and… fun!  

Please join us online on December 9 and 10, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EST daily. We would really like to see you there!
