New Netherland Dinner

The New Netherland Dinner is customarily held in September on the evening following the the Institute's Annual Conference. The dinner's venue depends on where the conference is held, most often in Albany.

Cost per person varies depending on the charges to NNI. The registration form allows for a donation to be made to benefit the New Netherland Research Center and NNI.

Members of NNI receive an invitation by surface mail to the Annual Conference and the New Netherland Dinner, which includes the programs for both events. The events are also publicized on this website and in the the Institute's quarterly newsletter De Nieu Nederlanse Marcurius.

Dinner speakers include the president of the New Netherland Institute, the director of the New Netherland Research Center, and the recipient of the annual Hendricks Award or another invited guest.
