Welcome from our Hosts

We are excited to host our first in-person meeting since 2019 back at the site of NEERS founding, Salem State University in Salem, MA! Salem is a historical coastal city on the North Shore of Massachusetts. It was first settled by Europeans in 1626 and was the location of the infamous Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Salem was the birthplace of two famous Nathaniels: Nathaniel Bowditch, author of the New American Practical Navigator, and Nathaniel Hawthorne, author of The House of the Seven Gables, which is located on Derby Street. Now Salem is a favorite tourist destination, with many historic buildings, the Peabody Essex Museum and excellent restaurants. This meeting will be offered in a hybrid format, giving those who cannot attend in person an opportunity to attend virtually.
