This will be the first time we will host our meeting in the State of Montana, and we look forward to reconnecting and networking with our colleagues in Big Sky Country as we gather to share in training opportunities and professional development, as well as to examine emerging issues in research administration. In addition to the program of workshops, concurrent and discussion groups that will be held during the meeting, there will be a Sunday evening reception at the hotel, Monday evening activities in downtown Billings, and a Tuesday night event at the historic Billings Depot (just a few blocks from the host hotel).
