The site is the Ocean Edge Resort Brewster, MA

June 28-July 1, 2020 - This event for 2020 has been cancelled.

SAVE THE DATE for 2021 - June 27-June 30, 2021

It is with a sad heart that we announce that this year’s Section 1 Summer Institute (2020) has been cancelled.  Our hope is to be able to offer almost the same course schedule as we had planned next Summer 2021, with the exception of some new courses that should be rolled out by the NIAAA in December.  Please remember if you had reservations to cancel them.  The Ocean Edge Resort is willing to honor the original rate if you still wish to go with your family on your own.  We plan to extend the contract if possible to 2023 and celebrate 20 years for the Institute.  We’d love for all of you will consider joining us next year June 27th thru June 30th 2021, if we’re able to host the Institute as planned.  We’ll be in touch right around the National Conference this December to let you know what our plans are.  Be well my Friends!!  ~ Steve Young, CMAA and Peter Shambo, CMAA
