Northeast Lecturer's Conference
The information for the Northeast Lecturer's Conference is here. The conference is hosted by Rhode Island and will be held at Bridgewater State University, in Bridgewater Massachusetts August 1-3, 2016. The cost if the same as last year, $190 for a double room and $200 for a single room. The dorms are suites and all rooms where the conference is going to be held will be air conditioned. Bedding is provided and you may want to bring a sweater.
The conference theme is "Come Visit Us In ... and ours is "Vermont". I am thinking of off road places, not the usual tourist places. So some of the ideas so far are:
This year all programs will run about 25 minutes so that they can be used as a true lecturer program (if you buy the state program).
Your conference registration paper & check goes to Eileen Hebert in Rhode Island. Usually there is a $10 check made out to me, which helps to cover the supplies for the Vermont program, but I am forgoing this for 2016. I don't see much of a cost for this program so I will take the expense out of my budget.
I will mail out directions and the campus map to those that register. Remember this
conference is open to all not just the Lecturers. -Linda Sanderson VSG Lecturer
