HomeTown Series

Each year, the Office of Alumni Relations, invites regional alumni to a series of professional CE programs, held in local communities throughout the country. These informal events include one hour of complimentary COPE-accredited continuing education, a College update during dinner, and networking opportunities. During the 2017 - 2018 series, over 90 alumni enjoyed NECO’s HomeTown programs.
