Speed networking

Polish up those networking skills in time for this year’s URMA Annual Conference. A virtual networking session so we can get to know one another better in small groups (via breakout rooms) and discuss issues of mutual interest. All are welcome!

2-3 p.m. EST

Want to join a dynamic group of research communicators in a small, active organization?

URMA has an e-discussion group where we share resources, opportunities and challenges we have in communicating research, both internally and externally, to receive feedback from peers.

Every year, we get to travel to different universities for our annual conference. And every month we host URMA Live! to learn from each other and from other professionals on a variety of topics.
