I would like to thank you for taking the time to help us with our continued advocacy in RI and to thank you for your support and assistance in passing legislation last year. Your efforts were noted by our legislators.
For those of you who may be hearing this for the first time, last year RI passed legislation to create a registry in the state of RI. The bill passed and we are waiting on the completion of our registry. Unfortunately, our governor has just proposed her budget with an article (article 20) that would repeal the registry passed last year. I have grave concerns regarding the negative impact this could have not only in RI but also in setting a pattern across the country.
I am reaching out again to request assistance in RI. I am attaching a template to send to the representatives in RI (I am also attaching two sets of emails). The most important representative would be the heads of the house committee on finance (Representative Gallison) If you copy or forward correspondence to email@example.com we will also create a database to ensure all testimony was received by the appropriate individuals.
Thank you again for your response and assistance.

As part of the NER-AMTA Strategic Plan and to better serve the membership, this survey is to gather information and opinions regarding future regional conferences. Please take a moment to fill out this survey. It will help us better serve you.
Congratulations to this year’s NER Conference Scholarship award winners:
All current NER-AMTA members:
We will be electing a new slate of officers as well as Assembly Delegates at our upcoming regional conference.
We are seeking nominations for Assembly Delegates. All members in good standing are eligible for nomination. The Assembly of Delegates is the legislative and policy-making body of AMTA. Each region sends a certain number of delegates, based on regional membership numbers.
Currently, NER sits a 5-delagate representation in the Assembly; the President assumes one of those spots. We also are required to have alternates in the case a primary delegate is not available. Delegates also serve as part of the executive board of NER (voting member).
The NER delegates serve as a voice of the region. All delegates must make a commitment to attend national conferences, as this is when Assembly business is conducted. This is a 2-year commitment, with opportunity to serve again if nominated and voted in.
If you are interested in this position, I would encourage you to review:

Please submit your nomination and a brief bio directly to Eve Montague, MT-BC, Immediate Past-President, NER at firstname.lastname@example.org
Nominations must be received no later than Friday April 10, 2015.

Join us for the 2014 NER AMTA conference!
“Expanding our Horizons, Deepening our Practice”
at The Water’s Edge, Westbrook, CT
April 3-5, 2014
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. 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!
Don’t miss it–sign up soon. See you in April!
