NEMAAR Call for Event Proposals

If you have an idea for an event, we welcome proposals from those who are currently NEMAAR regional members. Our goal is to sponsor events in different parts of the region, to benefit the greatest possible number of members. Such events will be organized by members and supported with regional financial and promotional assistance, provided that the event is open to any regional member. Graduate students with a faculty mentor are eligible to apply. We have set a rolling deadline to make it possible to submit an application at any time. If you have an idea or inquiry and want feedback, please contact Regional Coordinator Ronald Bernier at Proposals should be sent directly to NEMAAR Secretary Thomas Hermans-Webster at Please review the variety of past co-sponsored events, but do not let these formats limit your ideas.

Cosponsoring Conferences and Workshops: In addition to sponsoring its own annual regional conference NEMAAR also will try to cosponsor conferences and workshops proposed by members around the region as its finances permit. Proposals should be sent to NEMAAR Secretary Thomas Hermans-Webster at and should include a conference title, an abstract, a list of projected speakers, schedule, contact person, and a budget that indicates how the NEMAAR grant will be used as well as how the remainder of the conference budget will be funded since the absolute limit of NEMAAR funding is $800.00 per event. If submitted by graduate students, a faculty mentor must be identified. Proposals have a rolling deadline.

If you have an idea that is not listed here but that you feel is consistent with the above mentioned goals, please send an inquiry to Regional Coordinator Ronald Bernier at
