Description

NESAWG's 2019 It Takes A Region Conference

NESAWG's annual It Takes a Region Conference brings together farm and food practitioners across the 12-state Northeast region to learn, debate, collaborate, and innovate ideas and solutions to critical food systems issues. Our 2019 conference will be held November 7-9th at New Jersey City University in Jersey City, NJ.

Our annual conference is widely regarded as the conference for anyone doing food system change work in any Northeast state. Hundreds of practitioners convene not only for workshops, plenaries and networking, but to roll up their sleeves and do the real work needed to create a just and fair regional food system in several work group sessions. Explore our most recent conference, read the full 2018 conference report, and join our newsletter for regular updates.

Pricing

This year, NESAWG is instituting an optional tiered pricing structure. We are doing this so we can continue to offer lower cost tickets to those who need it, while raising funds to support lower cost tickets and our scholarship fund. We offer suggestions for each ticket price, but leave it to you to purchase the ticket that works best for your individual or organizational budget. To learn more about the new pricing structure, visit the registration info page on our website.

Scholarships

NESAWG offers scholarships to help make our conference accessible to youth, students, farmers, and low-income people. (Youth is defined as under 25 years of age.) Full scholarships cover the total registration costs of the main conference (Friday and Saturday), while partial scholarships cover 50% of the fee. Scholarship applications close September 23, 2019. For more information visit the Scholarships at the Conference page.

Youth Registration Policy

Youth are welcome at the conference and we encourage organizations working with youth to consider bringing them to participate. This year, we will have programming at the conference developed by youth for youth. We also prioritize youth applicants in our scholarship process.

All youth under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and must submit a permission slip signed by their parent or guardian to NESAWG. Organizations bringing youth to the conference must also sign and submit a release form to NESAWG. Permission slips and organizational release forms will be sent via email for electronic signatures to attendees and organizations who require it, based on information given in the registration form.

Refund Policy

If you are unable to attend the conference after you register, NESAWG will reimburse your full registration cost minus a $25 processing fee until October 14, 2019. If you request a refund between October 15 - October 30, you will receive a 50% reimbursement. No refunds will be issued after October 30, 2019. Please email refund requests to conference@nesawg.org
