“The 2022 SRAI Annual Meeting was a wonderful opportunity to meet with current and prospective clients and strategic partners. As always, the meeting was an opportunity to gain new knowledge on trending topics and connect with colleagues from around the world. I find the SRAI Meeting to be an amazing energy infusion that reminds me why we do what we do for our clients and the field of research administration.”

“I love seeing all the new SRAI Future of the Field introductions. Those are the thought and actions leaders of tomorrow, and Attain Partners was well represented by Amanda Seymour in this year’s class and by Bella DiFranzo in the first class of 2021.”
Ivonne A. Kalinski, Senior Consultant
“Attain Partners and Cayuse presented at the SRAI Annual Meeting on how the Cayuse eRA system is being successfully implemented at the University of Wyoming (UW). Cayuse and Attain Partners described the purpose of their strategic partnership with one side focusing on subject matter expertise and the other on industry-leading software expertise. Together, they guided UW through a thorough and successful software implementation, tying the current and new streamlined processes into the Cayuse system.
Attain Partners also had the opportunity to explain why having a change management program in place for the goal of end-user adoption is crucial for a successful project implementation! Most importantly, the University of Wyoming’s Director of Office of Research and Economic Development was there to share a real-life testimonial about her experience working with Attain Partners and Cayuse.”
Anthony J. Cassese, MBA, Senior Consultant
“Attending the SRAI Annual Meeting is always a great way to expand your knowledge in research administration—no matter how much experience you have. The Annual Meeting is also always a great way to meet new people who are willing to share their ideas and experiences. Whether it’s by presenting a workshop, or session, or participating in regional chapters, SRAI does an excellent job promoting the many opportunities to become more involved in the research community. I look forward to continuing to participate in the many learning opportunities that SRAI provides as well as connecting with new and diverse minds that are leaders in the research administration industry.”
Amanda Seymour, CRA, Senior Associate
“The Society of Research Administrators International (SRAI) Annual Meeting is an event where research administrators from across the world come together to discuss all things research administration, from compliance to workflow processes to leadership within research administration. It is truly a culmination of some of the brightest research administrators in the world, which sets the stage for impactful networking and educational opportunities.
With all of our research enterprise projects currently underway here at Attain Partners, the SRAI Annual Meeting allowed me to meet current and potential clients face-to-face, hear the needs across the industry, and meet the up-and-coming research administrators who were first-timers to the meeting. The Annual Meeting is also critical for obtaining CEUs to maintain my Certified Research Administrator credential. With the dynamic and fast-paced environment of research administration, attending the SRAI Annual Meeting is imperative to remain current on grant management and compliance.”
