NEBC is unable to host the trade show this year, but we have scheduled individual Zoom sessions with our vendor partners, and encourage our store members to attend as many as possible.  The schedule is attached below.
In addition, NEBC will host round table discussions on March 24 and 25 to provide an opportunity for our store members to share ideas of what has worked, what has not, and any new ideas and trends.  Sessions will be led by NEBC board members.
In April, working with NACS, NEBC plans to offer store members professional development sessions which deal with the practices needed to operate a successful educational store.  Sessions will be announced as we set them up.
Lastly, it is our hope that in March of 2022 that we will be able to see more of our store members attending the NEBC annual meeting and trade show.  In 2020, we had 90 stores and 120 store employees, but the board is working to increase that number for next year.  Ask those who have attended, and you will get positive responses about the chance to improve store finances with vendor specials, and expand your professional network in a user friendly professional environment.
