Northeast Regional Tax Collectors & Treasurers Association

Welcome to the NEW home page of the Northeast Regional Tax Collectors and Treasurers Association. 


Northeast Regional includes the northeastern United States from Maine to Maryland, as well as the District of Columbia.  There is always room at our table for new members.  Each member state and province is entitled to “at large” representation on our Board of Directors, and the president of each state or provincial association, or their designee, is a member of our Board. 

If YOU are interested in becoming more active in our group, perhaps as an at-large representative of your own state, please reach out to one of the contacts on this page, or have your state association reach out to us.    

Our association was organized in 1988.  In 2023, we revised our bylaws to reflect recent changes in how we conduct business and to more accurately reflect the composition of our group.   Since COVID, we have been holding more virtual board meetings, as well as virtual workshops.   2023 saw the reinstatement of our newsletter, and we made a commitment to offer virtual workshops in an effort to reach more people.  This has proved successful, and we anticipate continuing to offer virtual workshops, as well as our three day in person annual conference, in the years to come.   Our 2024 conference will be held September 15 – 18 in historic Sturbridge, Massachusetts, centrally located near the midpoint of our geographic range, in an effort to attract more attendees.  In 2019, we were in Ogunquit, Maine for our conference; in 2020 we were unable to meet, due to COVID 19.  We regrouped, and 2021 took us to Cape May New Jersey; 2022 to North Conway New Hampshire; and most recently in 2023 we were in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  Where will the future take us ?  We invite YOU to help us decide! 


Thank you, and please check back here for updates.

Message from the President

Hello Everyone,

Hi everyone! As some of you may know, I was President for 2007-2008, & now again for 2024-2026. My goals for this great Association have not changed much. It is to help us grow. With the help of dedicated board members and especially my VP, Addie Schmidt, I hope to achieve that goal. Each year our Association has continued to offer an atmosphere of camaraderie, networking, education, and so much. Our conferences touch on areas that are pertinent in helping us serve the public in a professional manner. December of 2023 we will offer our third workshop. September of 2024 we will be in Sturbridge, Massachusetts for our 35th conference. Yes, our association goes way back to 1988, how ’bout that! Please click the link above and read our beautiful fall newsletter, which has our upcoming events. Click on our workshop page and sign up for our December 14th virtual workshop. I anticipate the next two years taking us to picturesque places for our conferences and many educational opportunities.  So come and help us grow!
