NAGS 2023 Annual Meeting Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of President Cari Moorhead and the other members of the Executive Committee of the Northeastern Association of Graduate Schools (NAGS), I am pleased to provide registration information for the 2023 annual meeting of the Northeastern Association of Graduate Schools in historic Portsmouth, New Hampshire. An early bird conference fee of $300 per person is extended to all individuals from NAGS member institutions.

Additionally, a group room rate of $149/night is available at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside, the site of the conference, with a room cutoff date of March 29, 2023. You may reserve rooms through this online reservation site, or by calling the hotel directly at (603) 431-2300 and mentioning the NAGS conference group rate. A limited number of rooms are available at the group rate for the days immediately prior to and following the meeting for those who would like to extend their stays.

On the morning of April 20 prior to the meeting, participants and their guests may register for an optional 90-minute tour of the Black Heritage Trail. There is no cost for this tour, but registration is required on the conference registration form so we can get a headcount.

The Executive Committee is planning an intriguing meeting with plenary sessions focused on topics such as first-year student success, data analytics in program appraisal, creating inclusive graduate communities, and graduate student supervision. The Executive Committee would also like to invite conference participants to share innovative practices at your institution in a 10-minute flash talk on Saturday morning.  If you have a proposal for a flash talk, please contact me at this email address.

NAGS Secretary-Treasurer
