Northern New England Philosophical Association (NNEPA)
The Northern New England Philosophical Association was founded in 1972 by a group of philosophers from several northern New England institutions of higher learning for the purpose of promoting the study of philosophy and the exchange of philosophical ideas. The organization meets annually, usually on a Friday-Saturday in the second half of October. Institutions that have hosted the annual conferences more recently are:
