Welcome to SERC 2021!

Early bird registration is now open! Click HERE to register today.

Thank you to everyone who shared your opinions with us in our recent SERC temperature survey. An overwhelming 68% of you are ready to meet face-to-face and are planning to attend SERC in-person in Nashville at the end of April.

The SERC planning committee is here to serve all our members. We heard each of your voices, and read every comment and suggestion. For those who are not comfortable yet meeting in person, we will be adding an option for virtual content for SERC 2021. We heard how much you want this conference to happen, how much you enjoyed the virtual content from 2020, and that carrying the virtual option forward is important to you. Stay tuned for more information as we work out the details and gather resources.

For those who will be joining us in Nashville, rest assured that we are prepared to give you the in-person experience you have been craving while also taking the health and safety of our members very seriously. We have begun to put science-based measures in place to ensure we are offering the best event possible in the midst of these unprecedented times. Some of these things include:

  • Face masks required at all conference events
  • Extra time between sessions for room sanitization
  • Minimal exposure to food/beverage items and hotel staff
  • Six feet of space between each dining seat
  • Distanced breakout room set-ups
  • Outdoor networking events


In addition, we have contracted with a third-party planning team who brings an extra level of expertise to safety, advising us on the latest in COVID-19 protocols and conference technology. We are thankful for your support and feedback, and excited to see you either in-person or virtually in April.
