Are you interesting helping SIR with technology changes? 

Earlier this month, the Board decided to create a Technology Committee. This committee will be working to redesign our website, will focus on how we could deliver virtual professional development in the event our Annual Conference is disrupted and will work on other technology advancements to benefit our SIR members.  If you are interested in participating on this committee, please let us know! 

SIR Spring Research Workshop

SIR has been watching carefully all travel and health issues surrounding COVID-19. After talking with many SIR members, conference stakeholders, and learning of the increasing number of companies with strict travel restrictions, the SIR Board of Directors has weighed all the information and concerns and made the difficult decision that our Spring Research Workshops Summit, scheduled for April 6-8 in San Antonio, TX has been cancelled. Contact with questions.
