Here’s what some of our attendees had to say about our 2021 conference:
For me, having this as a virtual conference made it ideal because I live on the west coast and it would have been impossible for me to travel to this conference on the east coast if it were live.
You did a great job with a difficult venue. Thank you for all your hard work!!
Overall I liked it very much and I liked being able to talk to the live speakers.
I would never have been able to attend were it not virtual. Thank you!
Just to say thank you and you offered a great conference, nice range of topics and the platform used for the presentations was quite pleasant and easy to use.
I really appreciated being able to watch at my one pace. Even if we do in person, it would be great to have all the talks available from home as well.
Really enjoyed attending via computer at my own pace without opposing sessions.
Well done. All was beyond my expectation.
As this year’s theme states, we are “Springing From the Past Into the Future.” Even though the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible for us to meet in person as we have in past years, we prepared an exciting virtual NERGC conference with the technology of the future that we can attend from the safety of our homes.
The NERGC Conference was presented online from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm EST on the following six days:
- Thursday, April 1
- Friday, April 9
- Saturday, April 17
- Saturday, April 24
- Saturday, May 1
- Saturday, May 8
Recorded lectures AND the virtual Exhibit Hall were available online every day from April 1 through May 31.
Exciting components of a traditional NERGC conference, including Special Interest Group sessions, Ancestors Road Show, the Exhibit Hall, the Society Fair, and special program tracks, were all included in our virtual event. You can learn more in the tabs under our “2021 Conference” Menu, where you will also find a calendar of all our live lectures, chats, and events.
