A silver lining during these challenging times …
 
Our 41st Annual Conference was presented as the
Virtual Conference Series (VCS)!
(The schedule for the live sessions is listed below.) 
 
A lot of work goes into planning the Annual Conference and this year, once again, the Conference Program Committee did an excellent job of developing an outstanding array of topics and presenters to assist you and the community you serve. We didn’t want you to miss out on gaining this knowledge and are proud to present much of that planned content to you as the NYGFOA Virtual Conference Series. Please join us!
 
And, although there is no substitute for the value gained by interacting face to face with your peers, this Virtual Conference Series enables you to participate in a greater number of sessions than if you were here with us in Albany this year.
