February 2020 NRG News

February 19, 2020 2:13 PM | David Eddy


Jeff Sillick has been the Treasurer for the NRG since 2010. He will be retiring from the position in the near future, allowing him to explore other interests. The Board is sorry to see him go and we appreciate the eleven years that he has dedicated to the position.

The Board is looking for an NRG member to replace Jeff. This individual does not need to be an accountant but should have some basic accounting/finance/small business skills. Jeff has agreed to work with his replacement, so there will be expert guidance during the transition to the new Treasurer. 

A detailed job description for the Treasurer position is available and we will be happy to send it to any member interested in the position. Interested members should send an email to the office at

We (and Jeff) are hoping to fill the position by mid-March 2020. There is an honorarium associated with this position. Due to federal banking regulations, this position must be filled by a US resident.


The 38th Northeast Ship Model Conference will be held at the Port 'n' Starboard Convention Center at Ocean Beach Park in New London, CT and will be hosted by the USS Constitution Model Shipwright Guild. The Conference will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2020 from 9AM-3PM.

  • Up to 100 detailed models on display from award winning craftsmen and artists
  • The opportunity to display & enter your own model(s) in competition judged by fellow conference attendees
  • Vendors offering maritime & modeling books, kits, tools & supplies

  • Featured guest speaker is Mr. Rob Napier who will be speaking about aspects of his life in ship modeling.
  • Continental breakfast & buffet lunch

Conference attendees who wish to display models must pre-register. We need to know how many models and their display area requirements in order to allocate enough space when setting up the room.
