Dear Northern California Chapter Members,

Welcome to the 2017 Northern California Chapter Annual Meeting! This year's meeting will be held on June 15 at the University of California, Davis, Sponsored Programs Office.

Our meeting theme is Current Events in Research Administration. Our goal is to facilitate a deeper understanding of the complexities of research administration among our participants. The program agenda has been guided by feedback received from our members and includes the following:

  • Hot topics surrounding regulatory compliance, global research, Uniform Guidance, NIH policy and more!
  • Speakers who are established leaders at UC San Francisco, UC Berkeley, UC Office of the President, UC Davis and the University of Akron.
  • Keynote speaker, Ms. Cindy Kiel, UC Davis Executive Associate Vice Chancellor for Research Administration and the current President of SRA International.

I'm delighted that we are launching our Chapter's first conference with such an exciting agenda! I hope you will join us for a day of learning, collaboration and fun.  I look forward to seeing you soon!
