NEC Conference Update - Attending Agents/Editors

The 2009 NEC Conference Committee would like to update everyone on some changes to agents and editors attending our conference in March 2009.

Agent Vivian Beck, of the Vivian Beck Agency, who was scheduled to attend, has canceled for personal reasons. The Conference Committee will contact anyone already registered for conference who had requested an appointment with Ms. Beck and allow you to select another agent or editor. For those of you impacted, look for an email from our Agent/Editor Coordinator, Meghan Gehan, shortly.

The Conference Committee is also pleased to announce the addition of two new agents/editors to our 2009 roster: Agent Becca Stumpf from the Prospect Agency and Editor Leah Hultenschmidt from Dorchester Publishing. We are thrilled that they will be joining us!
