Our 71st Conference was held JULY 15, 16, 17 2016 at the University of Massachusetts Amherst Campus. NECCC is very proud to announce that Art Wolfe, renowned photographer, will be our keynote speaker Saturday night (sponsored in part by Canon). He is best known for color images of wildlife, landscapes, and native cultures. His American Public TV series, Travels to the Edge, helps us learn current photography techniques and appreciate the beauty of our natural world
