12th Annual Research Development Conference

The NORDP Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the NORDP 2020 12th Annual NORDP Research Development Conference in San Antonio, TX. We did not arrive at this decision lightly but we believe this is the wisest decision based on current events and increasing travel restrictions from our members’ home organizations.

NORDP will be issuing full refunds for registration within the next two weeks. Questions about payment can be directed to [email protected] We encourage you to cancel your hotel and travel reservations.

Of course, this is disappointing to the hundreds of registrants and dozens of speakers, presenters and volunteers who devoted their time to creating a meaningful event. We want to thank our sponsors, speakers, poster presenters, colleagues in the San Antonio area, and especially the Conference Committee led by Co-Chairs Jill Jividen and Jenna McGuire who worked incredibly hard to prepare.


Over the upcoming months, NORDP will host several webinars to cover content that is typically offered during conference. This includes:

  • A session to meet the new nominees running for the NORDP Board of Directors hosted by the Nominating Committee
  • An overview of NORDP’s achievement in the past year hosted by the NORDP President
  • A business meeting to review the organization’s financials hosted by the NORDP Treasurer
  • A virtual kickoff event for the mentors and mentees participating in the mentoring program hosted by the Mentoring Committee
  • Various professional development activities hosted by the Professional Development Committee
