With the spread of COVID-19 on the rise, we will host the 23rd Annual NERSC Conference online from May 4-7, 2021. This allows us to safely welcome all attendees and focus our efforts on creating an exceptional virtual program. We know this news may leave some of you feeling disappointed. However, we want to assure all of you this experience will be everything you have come to expect from NERSC.
Our speakers are excited to join on this new platform and continue to grow in numbers. They understand, as we do, the critical need for Resident Service Coordinators and other housing professionals to come together during this extraordinary time. Networking and continuing education have become increasingly important. As we face unprecedented challenges, these opportunities help us to grow in our practice and better support the needs of the communities we serve.
To avoid virtual fatigue, we extended the conference to a 4-day format with one-hour workshops. These will be mostly in the morning with wellness and entertainment later in the day. Within this, there is flexibility and time set aside for breaks. As an additional incentive, we have reduced the registration fee to just $299 while still offering 13 CEUs.
Cancellation Policy: If you have registered and cannot attend, you may send a substitute from the same company without penalty provided that you email NERSC at prior to April 20th. All substitute registrants must not already be registered for the same conference. A $25 cancellation fee will apply to all registrants who give written notice of cancellation before April 1, 2021. No refunds will be granted after that date. Credit cards and money orders are considered the same as checks and the same policy will apply.
The 23rd Annual Virtual NERSC Conference has been approved for 13 Social Work Continuing Education hours for relicensure, in accordance with 258 CMR. NASW-MA Chapter CE APproving Program, Authorization Number D-90235.
