We are also open to proposals presenting solutions and strategies from other sectors that would be equally innovative and of interest to Research Administrators and Managers.

Sessions and Workshops will be assessed and rated confidentially by the NCPC 2023 committee members based on 4 main criteria:
- CARA Strategic Plan
- Relevance/Interest in the Research Administration Community
- Organized and Defined
- Opportunity for Delegates' Engagement
