2014 Conference

Join us for the 2014 NER AMTA conference!

“Expanding our Horizons, Deepening our Practice”


April 3-5, 2014

Join us for our Spring conference at The Water’s Edge, a site that was so highly acclaimed after our 2010 conference that we’re returning this year! Your conference committee has been hard at work arranging what we hope will be a great conference for you all–thanks, largely, to the many wonderful proposals we received from you. We have many CMTEs to offer on Thursday, April 3, including our first-ever 8-hour Institute, on Supervision. We also have a wide range of topics that will be covered in our concurrent sessions. Our opening night banquet Thursday night will feature keynote speaker Hugh Blumenfeld, acclaimed singer-songwriter and MD, who will follow-up his talk with a performance. And Friday’s business luncheon will feature a special highlight: “Celebrating 60!”—a history and acknowledgment of NER’s incredible 60 years in service.  And, of course, the weekend will also include our Song-Circle of Friendship with Caryl Beth Thomas, as well as our matchless Cabaret!

So browse through the Pre-program and make your plans to be there.

Hotel reservations are open now—see link below. Our special conference room rate is valid through March 2nd.

See you in April!
