March 2009 Conference details available

All the pieces are coming together for the 2009 combined NCMC – SCFM Conference, to be held chiefly in Rock Hill, S.C. from March 3-6, 2009. Though there will be some minor changes and adjustments to come, you can now get a pretty clear idea of the conference plans and related matters by visiting THE NCMC WEBSITE. Click on Conference in the top bar or look for links in the right-hand column of the front page of the web site.

You can now review the entire line-up of sessions in the CONFERENCE BROCHURE (though there may be one more session to come – if it does get added, we will update the BROCHURE PDF). You can review or even fill out the REGISTRATION FORM. And there is other information – such as the deadline for early registration discounted fees and hotels – on the main conference page.

You will also find some scholarship opportunities, as we all know that budgets are tight for March 2009.

We have just announced – and the application form is posted on the main Conference page – that the Council had an adjustment in its budget that made it possible to offer four (4) scholarships of $150 each, which will cover the registration fee for the conference (hotel and transportation costs are not included). The deadline to apply, however, is January 16, 2009, which is only a few weeks away.

Also, if you are a history section member and have not already learned of it, review the information (also in the right-hand column on the web site) about scholarship applications being accepted -- also due by January 16, 2009. Also, note that nominations for new section committee members are being sought.

We hope to add a few more details very soon – including phone numbers and web addresses for the host hotels, and possibly a new payment option for conference registration fees. But a great deal about what’s happening in March is readily available now. Take a little time to check it out!
