Infrequently Asked Question:

Finding Solutions to Impossible Problems

Conference Information

As planning for NRHC 2021 is well underway, we are excited for our region to reconvene and hopeful that the next conference will be bigger and better than ever. You can now read the 2021 Conference Theme here. As we plan for an in-person conference, we are aware that forces beyond our control may once again make that an impossibility. For that reason, we will have several contingencies in place should the conference need to be moved to a virtual format.

 

While we are thankful that much of the work to plan the 2021 was completed, there is still much to do and much to look forward to. We will be creating various sub-committees to monitor the situation with Covid-19 to ensure that every aspect of the conference is designed to be as safe as possible and in line with CDC guidelines. That being said, we are dedicated to ensuring that the spirit and celebration of scholarship, exploration, research, and learning that NRHC is known for will be ever-present.

ADMINISTRATOR INFO

Student Presentations:
NRHC will happily “roll over” student presentations to the 2021 program if your students opt-in. You can indicate your student interest in the form. Students also have the option to submit their work for online publication. See the student section below for further details.

Virtual Business Meeting

The Executive Board will host the spring business meeting via Zoom on Friday, June 12th at 11 a.m.  Please review the business meeting materials before the meeting.  The Zoom link has been sent to members' emails. 

 

Call for Elections

We would like to announce the call for elections. Elections will take place after the Virtual Meeting. To best prepare, we are asking the membership to consider nominations for the following positions:

  • Vice President  (1 open position): Elected for a one-year term and shall be a member of the faculty or administration of any member institution in the Region. The Vice President shall succeed automatically to the office of President-Elect upon the election and installation of the new Vice President. The Vice President shall succeed to the office of President-Elect should that office become vacant. The president-elect co-chairs the organizing of the annual regional conference; the service of vice-president, president-elect, president, and immediate past president is a four-year commitment to the region.

  • Faculty Representative (1 open position): Elected to a two-year term by a vote of the membership of the Region. Faculty Board Representatives may serve no more than one consecutive term.

  • Student Representatives (2 open positions): Elected to a one-year term by a vote of the membership of the Region. Student Board Representatives may be elected to additional one-year term. The two student representatives plan three key student socials (Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings) of the conference, advertise to students, advise students on what to expect, maintain the region’s Facebook page with text and photos, and may coordinate with local student volunteers to help with City-as-Text, the registration table, and other tasks as needed.

  • If you are (or if your student is) interested in running for one of the following Executive Board positions, please send the required candidacy information, which includes a candidate's statement and a headshot to northeastregionalhonorscouncil@gmail.com.

  • Student candidates must secure a letter from their directors affirming program/institutional commitment to support travel expenses to attend the three meetings of the executive board (summer planning meeting, fall business meeting during the NCHC conference, and the Albany conference).  This letter must be included with the candidate's statement and headshot. Please note that NRHC will provide a up to $1000 in reimbursement to each student representative; these funds can offset the cost to travel throughout the term.

  • Elected candidates are strongly encouraged to attend the summer planning meeting (date TBD), Elected candidates are also expected to attend the upcoming NCHC conference and attendance at the NRHC conference is required. Each executive member receives a stipend.

  • Remember, if you choose to nominate someone other than yourself, please contact that person in advance of contacting us.

  • A final deadline for nominations is pending.

For Students

Opportunity to Present

  • As was noted when we initially postponed NRHC 2020, proposals that have already been accepted to that conference will be automatically accepted to the conference in 2021. All students will still be required to complete the Call for Proposals process in order to officially re-submit prior proposals. Students who re-submit have the option to make small changes to their proposals that may reflect updated research or uniformity with the new theme. Students who wish to submit an entirely different proposal than was previously accepted may do so, but they will not be automatically accepted and will be subject to review.
     

Chance to Run for Office:

  • Student Representatives on the Executive Board (2 open positions): Elected to a one-year term by a vote of the membership of the Region. Student Board Representatives may be elected to additional one-year term. The two student representatives plan three key student socials (Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings) of the conference, advertise to students, advise students on what to expect, maintain the region’s Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook pages with text and photos, and may coordinate with local student volunteers to help with City-as-Text, the registration table, and other tasks as needed.
