After a postponement of two years, the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC) 75th Annual Photography Conference will be held at the UMass conference center and campus ,Amherst, MA on 15-17 July 2022. This conference combines educational programs, workshops, photographic opportunities, vendor space, and door prizes in a three day weekend. This is a special conference for us, marking the 75th year that we celebrate photography. Unfortunately, it will be the last conference that we conduct of this size and complexity.
We keep the price of this conference very low, as it is our mission to provide educational opportunities for photographers. There is no need to commit to the three day event, we have options for 3-day, two-cay and one-day registration. A three day registration is only $205 before 24 June. On campus lodging is available including single air-conditioned room at $68 per night. Several meal plans are also available. You can view the registration lodging and meal options here.
