It is with great sadness that we must announce the cancellation of the rescheduled NEAF 2020 which was to be held September 12 &13 as well as rescheduled NEAIC which was to be held Sept 14th & 15th .  Continued prohibitions and mandates by the CDC, the State of NY, the governor and RCC college management, have dictated that an event of this magnitude cannot be held because of the ongoing Covid 19 concerns. 

However, RAC and NEAF are hard at work making plans and preparations for NEAF 2021 to be held on April 10th & 11th at RCC and NEAIC to be held at Crowne Plaza Hotel on April 8th & 9th.   NEAF 2021 is planned to be a most extraordinary event with over 100 vendors, incredible speakers, workshops and amazing surprises.  We guarantee that this will be the most incredible NEAF yet!

All 2020 purchases and registrations will automatically be credited to the 2021 NEAF and NEAIC.     

We wish that everyone in our extended community remains safe and healthy and we look forward to seeing all of our friends in 2021.
