“Connection is vital at such a difficult time.”

Once this is over and life (and bank accounts) return to some semblance of normal, my regular fees will return.” For more information,

Dear NER Music Therapists:
The wellness and safety of community is our top priority. With that in mind and given the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, we have had to make the difficult decision to suspend the 2020 conference.
If you have registered for the 2020 NER conference, you will receive a full refund for your conference registration fees.
Each attendee is responsible for cancelling their own hotel reservation, and we urge you to contact the Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa as soon as possible in order to secure your refund with them.
Moving forward, we are exploring options to provide an alternative conference experience before the 2021 NER conference and will keep you updated as we learn more.
I hope that you are staying well during this stressful time. Please keep connecting virtually, making music, and taking care.
Adrienne Flight MMT, MT-BC
