NRC FirstLook 2021

Digital Webinar
January 6, 2021

The NRC is pleased to offer our members and other industry leaders a new online program coming in January called NRC FirstLook 2021!

NRC FirstLook is an alternative to our annual NRC Conference held each January. While we would like to meet in person and make valuable connections as we have done at the annual conference for the past 42 years, that simply is not possible this January. NRC FirstLook will bring you many of the same benefits that has made the NRC annual conference the railway industry's premier event.

Through a series of high-profile, high-value online webcasts, NRC FirstLook 2021 will provide invaluable and timely insights for the new year.

NRC FirstLook 2021 features these primary tracks. Here is the complete NRC FirstLook 2021 Program and Agenda.

NRC FirstLook 2021 features these primary tracks (scroll down for a complete agenda):

  • Fireside Chat with Norfolk Southern CEO James Squires on Wednesday, January 6, 2021
  • Signals & Communications Panel on Wednesday, January 13, 2021
  • Procurement Panel on Thursday on January 21, 2021
  • Class I Chief Engineers Panel on Wednesday January 27, 2021

What our members say…

“Attendance at the NRC annual conference has been invaluable. The updates from the chief engineers at the various railroads give our company insight into what work we can anticipate in the pipeline for the upcoming year. This, along with the strong networking opportunities amongst individuals across the entire railroading community, make this an event that I look forward to year after year.”
