Preparing Students to Hold the Office of Citizen

Due to a variety of “unknowns” about returning to school this coming fall stemming from the COVID-19 global pandemic, the Massachusetts Council for the Social Studies (Mass Council) made the tough decision to postpone the 50th Northeast Regional Conference for the Social Studies (NERC50) until the 2021-2022 school year. 

In lieu of a conference in Hyannis this October, Mass Council is working with the New England History Teachers Association (NEHTA) to offer a virtual conference experience (NERCVirtual) for K-12 social studies teachers for the 2020-2021 school year. 

We will be reaching out to presenters who were initially slated to run their workshops at NERC50 and invite them to present a virtual workshop, webinar, or class. 

If you have already registered for NERC50 this October, we will be issuing a full refund. We will also issue full refunds to all vendors who were planning to exhibit at our NERC50.

We will have more information about NERCVirtual on our website later this month.

Sincerely,
NERC50 Planning Committee
