Some Rooms Available Saturday Night

The Campus Center Hotel advises they have a small number of hotel rooms available for Saturday night of the NEPCA conference. You can book one by calling them directly: 877-822-2110.  Friday night is currently booked solid, but you could check for cancellations. Otherwise, check this site for other lodging options.

TEN DAYS LEFT TO REGISTER

A REMINDER TO ALL WHOSE PAPERS HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED:

There are just ten days left to register for NEPCA’s fall conference. Please do so immediately. We have a very long waiting list of presenters that we will begin to call upon for those whose conference fees are not paid by the end of the day on 31 August.

Registration Due in Two Weeks!

PLEASE REGISTER NOW FOR THE FALL NEPCA CONFERENCE

Due to extraordinarily high demand, NEPCA requests that you be diligent in registering for the conference before September 1. We cannot guarantee your slot after that day and will begin withdrawing invites and soliciting replacements from the wait list.

Normally we’d be much much lenient about the deadline, but we are fielding queries and it’s imperative that we meet budget for this conference–one in which expenses are higher than normal.

NEPCA PAPER DEADLINE

 

 

A reminder to all that the deadline for submitting proposals for NEPCA’s fall conference at UMass Amherst is June 1.
