2021 Annual Session

2021 NEAFCS Annual Session

UPDATE: The Amway Grand Resort is cancelling all hotel rooms in our group block. Attendees will receive a cancellation email.  If you do not receive this email by September 22, please contact the Amway Grand to confirm cancellation of your room.

NEAFCS is in the process of transitioning the 2021 Annual Session to a virtual experience. We will be releasing new information to this website as it becomes final. The virtual meeting will still be held the first week of November, 2nd through the 5th, with the addition of Monday, November 1st to include Committee Plans of Work and Affiliate Officer Meetings.

We are excited to bring as much of Michigan as possible into this virtual meeting. We look forward to continuing to support their hard work thus far and hope you will too! Some of you may be wondering what the virtual event will look like and what it will offer.  We plan to utilize Zoom as much as possible for the different educational opportunities and events and host everything on our very own website secured with attendee access. We took the feedback we received from last year's first ever Virtual Annual Session to heart and are working hard to not only meet, but exceed, your expectations! 

With this Virtual Annual Session, you can watch the recordings of any sessions you miss live for 6 months after the event. And, this year, all of the recordings will be hosted right here at the NEAFCS website. Catching anything you missed will be as easy as logging into the website.

Registration Information
