NYCMER has a team of enthusiastic colleagues organizing the 2016 Annual Conference!

 

The Conference Committee provides a great opportunity to connect with colleagues, network, discuss best practices in the field, and, most importantly, help plan the Annual Conference. At the end of each summer, we put out a call for NYCMER members at all career levels to contribute their knowledge, experience, and time to this important professional development event.

Conference Committee members:

- identify and discuss key issues and trends in the field
- participate in one conference sub-committee (i.e. RFP, evaluation, after party)
- review and select proposals
- liaise with conference session chairs
- ensure that the conference runs smoothly

Conference Committee meetings take place after work one Tuesday each month at locations around the city. Committee members are expected to participate in 4 out of the 7 planning meetings, attend the Annual Conference, and communicate promptly via email.

If you have any questions about the Conference Commitee, please email NYCMER Vice President Dawnette Samuels at vicepresident@nycmer.org.
