Welcome to our Organization!
In an environment of changing research funding resources, many universities have recognized that having a strong institutional knowledge base to support their research enterprise has proven to be an invaluable resource. This recognition is realized in the increasing numbers of professionals dedicated to providing research development support. These professionals perform a broad array of activities designed to facilitate individual faculty members, teams of researchers, and central research administrations in attracting extramural research funding, creating research relationships, and developing and implementing strategies that increase institutional competitiveness. We are pleased to welcome these individuals to NORDP, a professional organization specifically created to meet their interests and needs!

NORDP’s Board of Directors seeks information on how to organize member-based elections for the organization’s Board. This Request for Information (RFI) outlines the principles under which such elections should take place and provides guidance on the broad goals that the Board hopes are achieved through a member-based election process.
In addition to creating an equitable and inclusive process, the Board is interested in receiving information regarding ways in which positions on the Board might be established or allocated to ensure diversity based on characteristics of interest such as, for example, institution type or size, or geographical location.
