Courtesy Enrollment for a CAP Member to Attend the 2015 NECCC Summer Conference

Every year NECCC allows each member club to select one member to attend the next NECCC Summer Conference with a free registration fee. CAP is a member of NECCC allowing us to select one of our members to receive this complementary registration fee. The important requirements to be selected are:

  • The person selected must be a member of CAP with his/her dues paid.
  • The person selected must be as least 18 years old as of July 1, 2015.
  • The person selected must have never attended the NECCC Summer Conference.

CAP must submit its selection to NECCC by March 15, 2015, an extension of the usual March first deadline. Many clubs have been unable to meet due to the unusual Winter weather this year. Any CAP member who is interested in being considered for this courtesy enrollment should contact Antoinette Gombeda ( before March 10, 2015. Send Antoinette your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. If more than one person is interested, Antoinette will select the recipient by drawing a name from a hat.

Remember, you must send your name and information to Antoinette Gombeda. She will take care of sending the required information to NECCC by the March 15, 2015, deadline. Also, remember that the courtesy enrollment is only for the registration fee; the lucky CAP member will still be responsible for his/her own transportation, housing, and meal expenses.
