All individuals who enter NEIWPCC offices during business hours are required to be fully vaccinated.


Annual Nonpoint Source Conference

The 32nd Annual Nonpoint Source Conference will be held April 27-28, 2022 in Woodstock, VT.

Since 1990, NEIWPCC, in partnership with its member states, has been coordinating the Annual Nonpoint Source (NPS) Conference. The Annual NPS Conference is the premier forum in the Northeast for sharing information and improving communication on NPS pollution issues and projects.

Faced with challenges to in-person meetings due to COVID-19, we held a virtual conference in 2021. This year, we are excited to announce that we are planning to hold the 32nd Annual NPS Conference in person!

Participating in the 32nd Annual NPS Conference

The Call for Abstracts is open from October 1 – November 19, 2021.

The conference will be held at the Woodstock Inn & Resort, in Woodstock, Vermont. Registration for attendees will open in February 2022. Keep checking in for more updates as we near the conference dates!

NEIWPCC is committed to providing an event that keeps all participants as safe as possible and promotes the well-being of our community. NEIWPCC requires all individuals who participate in the Annual NPS Conference to be fully vaccinated in order to attend.

  • Following the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) guidance, people are considered “fully vaccinated” either 2 weeks after they receive their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after they receive their single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
  • As new guidance regarding vaccine recommendations is updated by the CDC to include booster doses in the future, participants may be required to provide proof they have received such doses.

Guests must show proof of vaccination when arriving at the event. Accepted proof of vaccination includes the original vaccination card, a printed copy of the vaccination card, or a digital photograph of the vaccination card. To protect confidential information, NEIWPCC will not maintain copies of these documents, and any records provided will be discarded.

In addition, all attendees must adhere to all NPS Conference safety measures. The NPS Conference will operate according to the prevailing federal, state, county, and city laws, regulations, recommendations, and guidelines, as well as venue-specific regulations for the Woodstock Inn, as they are in effect over the NPS Conference dates (including but not limited to face mask requirements, social distancing, etc.).

To ensure safety, we will not be accepting on-site registrations.

We will continue to revise our procedures as needed to reflect the current state of the pandemic.
