Dear OCAIR Friends,

The Steering Committee is excited to announce the 2018 call for proposals for OCAIR Best Presentation and Best Practice Awards. The second award is added because of your donation to OCAIR professional development funds last December. We encourage all members who plan to attend the 2018 AIR Forum to compete for these awards. Individual and co-presentations (no panels or discussion sessions) are eligible for the awards. Proposals submitted to the 2018 AIR Forum are also eligible.

An Award Selection Committee, led by the Immediate Past Chair Eric Yang, will review and rate the submissions using a scoring rubric. The top rated submissions will be invited to present at the OCAIR virtual conference held in March. The Best Presentation Award winner will represent OCAIR at the 2018 AIR Annual Forum and receive a $600 travel grant. The Best Practice Award winner will receive a $400 travel grant.

Whether or not your proposal to the 2018 AIR Forum was accepted, you could submit the same topic to OCAIR. If you missed the deadline for AIR, here is your second chance. In addition to the attached proposal form, we highly encourage you to attach a PowerPoint presentation or other supporting documents to your completed proposal form to provide more information about your research or practice. Please submit your entire proposal package via email to Eric Yang by midnight EST on Wednesday, February 28, 2018. Late submissions cannot be accepted. For more information, please review the attached Best Presentation and Best Practice Awards Guidelines.

The announcement of a new program, OCAIR Young Professional Travel Grant, is forthcoming. This award targets graduate students and young professionals who have fewer than 4 years of work experience in Institutional Research (graduate school experience excluded).

If you have any questions, please contact Eric Yang. We appreciat your support of OCAIR and participation in our activities.

Best regards,

OCAIR Steering Committee
