The Conference Committee is responsible for planning and executing all aspects of the Annual NEDRA Conference.
This committee is integral to the success of the annual NEDRA conference. As a token of appreciation for the hard work and dedication leading up to and throughout the conference, committee members are offered complimentary NEDRA membership for one year, as well as complimentary conference registration as they will be required to attend and provide assistance throughout the conference.
Committee Members will work with conference co-chairs to assist in various aspects of the conference including:
It is anticipated that committee volunteers will spend 30 to 60 minutes per week beginning in the fall through the early spring, with limited additional time as needed in March through May as the conference nears. Additionally, conference attendance is expected, as there will be additional tasks to be performed throughout the conference.
The Conference Committee is co-chaired by Jolene Crosby-Jones of Massachusetts General Hospital and Ruthie Giles of Westfield State University. Other committee members include: Hut Beall of Mount Holyoke College, Nicole Fonsh of Harvard Law School, Sharyn Nolan of Harvard Business School and Rachel Sampson of the Environmental Defense Fund.
