Our first-ever Virtual Conference for 2021 is over. Speakers were well received, and many attendees enjoyed the flexibility and convenience of our virtual format.

Here’s what some of our attendees had to say about our 2021 conference:

“NERGC 2021 was one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended. Overall, the quality of the speakers and variety and relevance of topics was outstanding. In spite of the pandemic, the show went on. BRAVI TUTTI!”

“Please consider a combination in-person and recorded 2023 conference – love to come to Springfield, but access to sessions for 2 months would be a joy!”

“I appreciated the focus on New England topics very much.”

“Great job! I’ve supported two online conferences in the past year and I know how much work is involved; planning and execution were excellent. Thank you!”

“Please do virtual again!!!! Thanks so much for all of your hard work putting this together. I was hugely helpful to me as it really advanced my knowledge.”

“The DNA and Writing tracks were wonderful.”

“There was a lot of overlap in the DNA sessions…but I usually learned something new in each one…so not necessarily a bad thing! DNA is important and useful and everyone has a different problem to solve and technique for tracking and evaluating.”

“On the whole, BRAVO for a fantastic and informative conference!”

“This was a great conference! Thanks for all your hard work! Hopefully at least part of the 2023 conference can be done virtually, as I live far away (Florida) and am not sure if I be there in person.”

“Looking forward to Springfield in 2023!!”
