The Annual Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers traditionally rotates it’s location every year between Eastern Canada and the New England region with each jurisdiction having the opportunity to host. The Conference itself can range from two to three days in length and cover a variety of topics including energy, environment, trade, and infrastructure. The theme of the conference is different every year and is determined by the host jurisdiction; although the focus remains on regional issues. Governors, premiers, governmental staff, and business leaders gather for panel discussions, networking opportunities, and signing of resolutions and reports.
43rd Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers – Very Important Update-NEG/ECP Conference Cancelled!
The New Brunswick team has been monitoring Hurricane Dorian for the past week and working with its emergency management officials to stay informed on the storm’s movements. The Hurricane is currently on the path to hit the Canadian Maritimes Sunday. With overall safety in mind, unfortunately New Brunswick had to make the difficult decision to cancel the NEG/ECP Conference due to the storm’s severity and the need for premiers to stay in their province to monitor the storm.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. All delegates will be reimbursed for conference registration fees. Please connect with the Hilton and Delta hotel as soon as possible to cancel your reservation.
