NELLCO Symposium
Share |


After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2020 NELLCO & LIPA Symposium which was scheduled to take place April 1-3, 2020 in Schenectady, New York. The safety and health of attendees, speakers, and exhibitors is our priority.

The decision to cancel followed the declaration of a State of Emergency in New York State, domestic travel restrictions or closures from many of our attendee institutions, and registration and exhibitor cancellations.

All paid registrants will be refunded for their full cost of registration by the same method that was used to pay. For those who paid via credit card through PayPal, reimbursements will be processed by Friday, March 13, 2020. For registrants who paid by check, refund checks will be issued in the next two weeks. If you have questions about your refund, email

Hotel reservations can be cancelled by calling the Landing Hotel 518-579-8811. For those attendees who booked air, train, or bus travel and need additional documentation for cancellation, please email

The Symposium Planning Committee is working to determine if the content of the conference can be presented in a virtual format. We will have more information on this coming shortly.

Please reach out to us if you have questions at either or 518-694-3025.







This year NELLCO will be partnering with Legal Information Preservation Alliance (LIPA) to bring you a diverse array of programming and exciting new speakers while maintaining the spirit of the NELLCO Symposium.
