Join the Conference Committee!


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:

  • Work with professionals and students from around NYC and beyond.
  • Determine the conference theme through identification and discussion of key issues and trends in the field.
  • Participate in conference sub-committees (i.e. RFP, evaluation, after party).
  • Review, debate and select proposals.
  • Take on the role of "conference shepherd", working with presenters as they plan their session, and helping with logistics on the day-of.
  • Work together to ensure that the conference runs smoothly.


Conference Committee meetings take place after work on Tuesdays.  Most are scheduled for 6 - 8pm.

  • For the time being, meetings will be virtual.  Should we be able to resume in-person meetings, they will take place within New York City, and snacks will be provided
  • Committee members are expected to participate in minimum of 5 out of the 8 scheduled planning meetings, and are required to attend the February 9th selection meeting and the May conference.


The 2021 Conference Committee has started meeting.
