Giveaway Membership to SRA!
We will have a giveaway for one lucky in-person RAN attendee to get a free affiliate membership to Society of Research Administrators (SRA) International, as needed, plus registration for the full two days at the Michigan Chapter Annual SRA Meeting, to be held at the Amway Grand Hotel and Conference Center, May 14-15 (hotel and travel costs not included nor is vacation time pre-approved)!
This is valued at up to $275. What a great way to get more deeply involved in research administration! 
Annual Research Recognition Awards Ceremony!
Please also join us immediately after RAN in the Vandenberg Room, from 3:30pm-5:00pm, for the annual U-M Office of Research Recognition Awards Ceremony to honor Sharyn Sivyer and Cathy Handyside (to be featured in the next issue of The RAP)!

We are piloting a Webcast for the May 4th RAN! Note that UMOR Staff Recognition Awards that will honor Sharyn Sivyer and Cathy Handyside will not be Webcast. So we do hope you will attend in person for a better networking experience. However, if you do need to attend remotely,
