Other information:
The goal of the NIRCA Winter Conference is to promote intercollegiate club running through presentations, developmental workshops, club officer networking and by soliciting feedback from member clubs to help shape NIRCA's future.

Do you want to know where your dues go? Want to see what other clubs do to recruit and retain members, or maybe how best to run your club elections? Want to meet your fellow club runners from across the nation and build rivalries for the coming Road and Track Season, or the fall Cross Country season? The ideas and comments that you provide at Winter Conference will directly impact NIRCA's future plans and policies. Winter Conference is your gateway to all this and more!

Winter Conference is centrally located and aptly timed among NIRCA schools and schedules, in Philadelphia, PA the weekend of January 15-17. Take the long MLK Day weekend to make your voice heard, hear others' opinions and progress the club running community.
