Conference Update Due to Coronavirus
Update March 27, 2020: Click Here
Like AERA, NCME is also concerned about the potential impact of our conference and the spread of the coronavirus, and so we are also canceling our onsite annual meeting in San Francisco. At the same time, we note that the NCME Annual meeting is the single most important event we hold each year, and is important for disseminating cutting-edge measurement research and practice, professional development, and networking. We also note that the conference and training workshop committees have put together an outstanding program—and many of you are integrally involved with that program. Therefore, we are considering two options for keeping the 2020 NCME Annual Meeting alive in some fashion. Two ideas we are exploring are (a) trying to hold some type of virtual conference online, in conjunction with AERA; and (b) postponing the conference to the fall, probably September, in a location to be determined (but would not be a “port” city). We will make a decision soon about these two options, and we remain hopeful we will still deliver an NCME 2020 conference in some capacity. Please stay tuned for more information. Please also note that AERA and NCME plan to refund all currently paid conference registration fees. Details on that refund will be forthcoming.
