75th NECCC Conference Postponed to 2021
With the uncertainty in the USA and the New England area due to COVID19, NECCC has decided like the Olympics to postpone our 75th Anniversary Conference to 2021. We will have all the same speakers, activities and events that we have announced for 2020 – the 75th will just take place one year later. The program registration fee will also be unchanged from 2020 and will remain at the low cost of $205 for early registration. Our Conference Chairs will remain the same, Lisa and Tom Cuchara who have agreed to stay on for one more year.
We thank you all for your past, present and future support of the conference and we hope you will all join us July 16-18th in 2021. If you have registered for the 2020 conference already, you will receive another email from Susan Mosser regarding refunds. It will come from firstname.lastname@example.org.
