After a long hiatus from the city where the conference originated, we are excited to return there for the 2022 NENHC and even more so as we will be holding it at the new Albany Capital Center. Located a stone's throw from the Capital Plaza venue we had used before, the ACC is a new, modern facility that is particularly well suited to hosting our conference.
We are definitely looking forward to ditching the Zoom and screens and seeing and chatting with all of you live face-to-face. Rest assured that we will be working with the ACC to ensure that the event is conducted with COVID safety in mind, with extra attention to providing for ample distancing at all times, temperature check at registration, masking required for all attendees, thorough sanitizing practices, effective air filtration (bipolar ionization technology), and a conference and venue staff that is fully vaccinated and masked.
You won't want to miss the Northeast's largest regional forum for researchers, natural resource managers, students, and naturalists to present current information on the varied aspects of applied field biology (freshwater, marine, and terrestrial) and natural history for the Northeastern United States and adjacent Canada. It will serve as a premier venue to identify research and management needs, foster friendships and collegial relationships, and encourage a greater region-wide interest in natural history by bringing people with diverse backgrounds together. Every year, we receive affirmative feedback about how friendly, collegial, and enjoyable the conference is and how it is especially welcoming of and valuable to students.
