NECCC is the New England Camera Club Council, an umbrella organization for New England camera clubs. I was told that this is a very good conference to attend and plan to be there for the first time.
The conference happens Friday and Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. (!) and Sunday to 12:30 p.m.. The most interesting program happens Friday and Saturday, but Sunday has photo ops, model shoots and award ceremonies. Lots of goodies are handed out and the program also includes a presentation on light painting and drawing by our own meetup member and night guru Lance Keimig.
Here is the main page to learn more about the conference (http://www.neccc.org/p/next-conference.html).
