New England Council of Callers Association

NECCA is an organization that began in 1961 representing all New England Callers Associations. NECCA is built around people, pride and purpose.

*Important Message from Gloria – NECCA Chairman:

As we wait for the current crisis to end, our activity has stopped for the time being. Many of us are in contact with our dancer friends and look forward to start dancing again. It is important to remember that the dancers will look to us as leaders and need to feel upbeat for the future of square dancing. We will all be looking forward to the end of isolation and the need to get out and socialize with each other. More than ever, our activity with its social aspects will be a welcome change. As a leader of a caller run club, I have been reaching out to our club members a few times a week.

Our NECCA Clinic will be scheduled for the 2021 NESRDC. The Callerlab focus on Socialization will be emphasized during the coming year. As so many cancellations of major activities, sports, orgaqnizations, and life styles are on hold, it is time to remember that this too shall pass. Let us come back with renewed energy and purpose.

Warm Regards,

Gloria Vivier

NECCA Chairman
