With the pressures of the continued COVID-19 pandemic, NECCC has decided to postpone our 75th Anniversary Conference to 2022. This is obviously not a decision we made easily or one that we wanted to make. Certainly, if you asked us last July, we would never have anticipated having to postpone the 2021 conference. We have been hopeful that it would be safe to hold our 900-person event, but here we are despite the light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine rollouts, having to postpone again. When we started looking at state and local restrictions, social distancing, allowable room capacities, how to safely feed everyone for three days, along with travel restrictions for both our attendees and speakers, and other safety questions, it just became apparent that there were too many variables to work out. As we had planning and publishing deadlines looming, we made the difficult decision to postpone to 2022.
The 75th Anniversary conference in 2022 is going to be extra special but with too many moving parts to turn it into an online event: 3 Keynote Presenters–Scott Kelby, Frans Lanting, and Corey Rich, a special showcase dedicated to New England Photographers, a plethora of top-rated speakers, demonstrations, interactive sessions, conference & pre-conference workshops, photo walks, NECCC female models, character models and much more.
If you rolled your 2020 registration fee over to the 2021 conference, you will be getting a special email from Susan Mosser regarding this. Please put email@example.com in your contact list.
To thank everyone for being a part of the NECCC family, we will be holding a one-day online event on Saturday, July 17th featuring speakers Richard Bernabe, Andre Gallant, ANEC and Freeman Patterson.
Along with our speakers, Hunt’s Photo & Video will be joining us; there will be an event projected image competition and $1000 in door prizes.
Registration for our NECCC 2021 Event on July 17th opens March 31st – Registration Fee $30
