Preparing for the Conference 

 

There are many ways to prepare for an enjoyable conference experience. One is to make sure you have an active NYCMER membership so that you're one of the first to be notified when our conference tickets go on sale, since registration is limited and often sells out. Another is to get to know your fellow NYCMER members before the conference by joining one of our many peer groups. Many NYCMER members are also active on Twitter, and we encourage conference attendees to prepare and share with us @NYCMER and each other with a designated hashtag.
