Summer Conference Update

Dear NYSCHSA Member,

I sincerely regret to inform you that the NYSCHSA Executive Committee has made the very hard decision to cancel the 2020 Professional Development Summer Conference in Lake Placid. We were all looking forward to seeing you this August for another summer program filled with information sharing, exciting CEC sessions and outstanding face-to-face networking. With summer programs already planned for 2021 (Rochester Hyatt) and 2022 (Thousand Islands Harbor Hotel), we plan to visit Lake Placid again in 2023.

I want to thank everyone who has provided the Association with feedback regarding the summer conference plans. I look forward to seeing everyone when it is safe to do so. 

Stay well,
Todd Gadd
Wyoming County
NYSCHSA President
