NACRA 2020 Annual Conference: Online-only
October 8 – 10, 2020

The NACRA executive board has voted to host the 2020 Annual Conference as an online-only event. This decision was taken after surveying our membership, investigating multiple physical and hybrid options, and negotiating with our contracted hotel. Although we are disappointed that we won’t be able to meet physically in San Antonio this year, we are excited that we will be able to host a quality conference online that still provides a unique opportunity to engage with other leading case researchers in a small-group format, to receive detailed and constructive feedback about your case, and to participate in presentations from experienced case researchers and educators. The online NACRA conference will include our distinctive roundtable track design, which provides an excellent professional opportunity to enhance your abilities to develop higher quality participant-centered and discussion-based cases, that would be suitable for publication in numerous refereed journals (such as NACRA’s Case Research Journal), case publishers and distributors, and textbooks. The Annual Conference will also include a collaborative start-up workshop and ‘new views’ topic sessions.
