NEC Aquarium Convention: April 9-10, 2016

Hi, everyone.

Wanted to let you all now about a great annual event from a non-profit that folks around the country have been attending for over 40 years: The North East Council of Aquarium Societies Annual Convention. Speakers, auctions, shows, livestock vendors, and more. ALL ARE INVITED! The NEC is an all-volunteer 501c3 coalition of aquarium societies and members. The flyer and video below highlight why this event is so popular. This year the NEC is celebrating it's 60th Anniversary and we expect it to be one our biggest Cons yet.

Thanks! - Ted
