March 27, 2020 - The 22nd Annual NERSC, Inc. Conference Has Been Cancelled
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we must tell you that the 22nd Annual New England Resident Service Coordinators, Inc. Conference, originally scheduled to take place at the Omni Mount Washington Resort for May 6-8, 2020, has been cancelled and will NOT be rescheduled.
As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and its uncertain lifespan, we cannot in good conscience reschedule for the only date that the Omni Mount Washington Hotel would offer to us for 2020, which was June 29-July 3rd.
We have been notified by the Omni that they have cancelled all reservations in our group block and will be issuing refunds to those who have paid. As for cancelling your conference registration, we will take care of that for you. For those who have paid for the conference already, if we have processed the payment, we will reach out with a form to complete so that we can process your request. For those who have sent in payment, but that we haven’t processed yet, we will return those checks without cashing.
As a small regional 501c3 nonprofit, NERSC has been working hard for the last 22 years to offer top quality training and educational conferences for housing professionals. We’ve kept fees to a minimum and, as a result, turned a minimal profit. Each year, we rely on the sponsorship and registration funds to continue to sustain the conference. While we have been fortunate to have a few good years and have managed to build on our savings, with the cancelled event in 2020, we will take a severe hit to the stability of NERSC. For those who may be wondering about support from business and event insurance, please know that we always carry it, but as you may be aware, COVID-19 and other communicable diseases, are not covered. We have, with a hopeful spirit, applied for a disaster relief loan in hopes of helping to keep us afloat so that we can proceed with the planning of the 2021 conference.
As training for RSCs and other housing professionals is critical to the safety, health, and well-being of residents, we will do our best to continue providing high quality professional development for you.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call 508-863-0020 or email me at email@example.com.
Thank you for your support and be safe.

Resident Service Coordination
Resident Service Coordinators are professionals who serve elders, youth and families in their housing communities in both public housing and privately owned/managed affordable housing throughout the country.
Resident service coordination is essential to a healthy and vibrant affordable housing community and contributes substantially to the well-being of residents and successful management of the property.
Professional Resident Service Coordinators fulfill a variety of functions including (but not limited to):
Coordinating service-delivery through partnerships with community agencies, so that residents can live with independence and dignity;
Linking residents to social service intervention and support, to achieve and maintain successful tenancy;
Maximizing resident well-being and quality of life through coordination of onsite health and wellness programs;
Facilitating youth and family education and enrichment programs to build a sense of community and promote resident self-sufficiency;
Promoting healthy resident interaction and creating opportunities for resident leadership and community engagement.
NERSC is proudly committed to providing high-quality training and professional development for Resident Service Coordinators and housing professionals in New England and beyond.
