#NEASC2020 — a virtual event
First week of December, 2020

Though no one can predict what our situation will be next fall, we have decided to move forward with the NEASC Annual Conference and Showcase scheduled to take place during the first week of December. 2020 marks the 135th anniversary of this event, and we are excited to re-envision this long-standing tradition in a virtual platform. We will share more details as plans unfold, but we are galvinized by this opportunity to ourselves take a deeper dive into this year's theme, Engaged by Learning, as we look at opportunities to create an engaging online experience for all who attend.
