    Early bird registration ends Monday, 7/17, so plan to get yours in this week for the best price!  Full conference registration will go up $20 on starting 7/18.

    It's that time of year again - conference registration time!  Register now for early bird deals and join us at Agape for a fun weekend of professional development, informative field trips and workshops, and great networking.

    We have a new website and membership management service this year, so registration will work a little differently than you may be used to. In years past, you received a membership discount code for the conference.  You don't need a code this year! When you register, the system automatically recognizes you as a member if your membership is up to date and you use the same email address that you've used on the EENC website in the past. (You may be prompted for a password if you have not yet logged into the new site!) Then simply choose the membership registration type that applies to you from the options on the registration form.

    Visit the conference page for more information about the conference and to download a copy of the detailed conference registration packet.  The packet provides specifics on registration types, lodging options, and field trip/workshop prices, times, and descriptions.

    Early bird registration ends July 17th, so make plans to register soon for the best price!

    If you have any questions about the registration process, please contact Shannon Culpepper, registration co-chair and your EENC president elect.

    Hope to see you at Agape!

    Our organizational website has been out of date for a while now and things were getting hard to find.  We've started over from scratch to bring you an all new EENC website experience.  We hope it will be easier to find the information you need and navigate through the site.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please let our Communcations Chair, Chris Goforth, know! This is just the first round - we'll be updating the new site more often and can incorporate the best suggestions as we go.

    Welcome to the new website!
