Members and groups of members may propose virtual events to meet the needs of the membership and/or to benefit NARST as an organization. Virtual events are defined as any event that is offered as either a recorded, synchronous, asynchronous, or hybrid (e.g., synchronous/asynchronous) format. These events may include town halls, webinars, workshops, short courses, or other related activities that occur outside of the dates of the annual conference. Virtual events should be designed to be inclusive of the membership and open to all who would like to participate. These events should also align with the mission and goals of the NARST organization.
Proposed events will be advertised using NARST listservs and social media accounts and proposers are asked to submit a short report to provide information regarding the session following its conclusion.
The quarterly submission deadlines will be:
- March 10 for sessions in April - June
- June 1 for sessions in July - September
- September 1 for sessions in October - December
- December 1 for sessions in January - March 2025
Calls for proposals will be issued in advance of each deadline.
If approved, virtual events will be sanctioned by NARST and covered by the general liability insurance policy. Proposed events may utilize the NARST Zoom Account and are asked to submit a short report to provide information regarding the session following its conclusion.
