53rd Annual Conference Will be Virtual

Given rising uncertainties around the pandemic, the NPSA board decided to move its fall 2021 conference online. It will still be over two and a half days on on November 11-13. All panels will be held over Zoom –with panel chairs and discussants serving as Zoom hosts.  We will also have a number of special events in the program.

Though we are disappointed that we cannot have an in-person meeting, we have no doubt that the online format will offer a safe and productive venue to present our work and to interact with colleagues.

Given the pandemic’s uncertain course and our overriding concern for the health and safety of our members, we simply were not confident in proceeding with a large in-person gathering. As states’ mandates and universities’ policies are still restricting opportunities for academic travel, we understand that reliable travel planning will be difficult. The switch to an online meeting an indication of our commitment to providing a quality conference experience from that is engaging and safe.

The preliminary program will be posted online soon.

Feel free to reach out to us with any questions.
