Thank you for visiting our new website. We, as the Association, are looking forward to a successful year; one that is focused on increasing our Scholarship fund and meeting our strategic, and legislative priorities.
We stand on a rich and unique legacy, full of many triumphs and successes through difficulties, but we represent the diversity, intelligence and energies of the constituencies that WE SERVE. We aim as a collective and individuals to improve the quality of life for all New Yorkers, but this year we take a special interest in our children.
The 43rd Annual Legislative Conference, will convene on Friday, February 14th and conclude on Sunday, February 16th, 2014. This year’s theme, “Reclaiming Our Sons & Our Daughters” speaks volumes of our commitment to re-engage Legislators, businesses and our constituencies statewide to reclaim our children especially in light of childhood obesity; low graduation rates, and the loss of the Trayvon Martins of America. We are committed to our mission, but we need YOU to be our partner to ensure that we will succeed.
Our scholarship initiative will hopefully fill the gap for ambitious students hoping to pursue their dreams of higher education. We wholeheartedly believe and can attest to education being the optimum vehicle to success. Through proceeds raised from the Scholarship Gala and the Concert we intend to double the amount of scholarship funds given to students in our respective districts.
We invite you to visit our website within the coming months as we update you on the seminars, concert artists, and various activities taking place during the weekend, and throughout the year. We welcome your feedback and thank you for your support!
