The NYSTRA Board is excited to announce that this year's multi-day conference will be in person back "home" in Saratoga Springs!

The Holiday Inn has welcomed us back with open arms and they are just as excited as we are to see everyone again. Rest assured that we will be taking all necessary precautions to ensure safety is at the forefront. At this time, we can confirm the following safety precautions:

  • All meeting rooms have hand sanitizing stations
  • Restrooms have touchless soap, water and paper towel dispensers
  • Sanitizing wipes and extra masks are available at the front desk
  • Social distancing is enforced within the meeting rooms for all set-ups
  • All meals can be boxed up for those who prefer to eat in their room
  • Depending on the weather, outdoor areas can be utilized for eating as well for more distancing
  • Some meeting rooms have been updated to enable hybrid format for virtual attendance (more on that soon!)
  • All attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination
  • All attendees will be required to be wearing a mask properly at all times unless eating or drinking

With all of that being said, it is time for us to start gathering abstracts for those interested in presenting at conference! Please see the attached speaker application to fill out and return to the email at the top of the application for review. Presenting not your thing but have a great idea of what you’d like to see? Please consider emailing us and letting us know so we can incorporate your needs/interests/populations! Don't want to present alone and looking for a partner to do it with you? Let us know!

In this dynamic time that we are currently living in, the NYSTRA Board will be adjusting plans as needed and be in communication often with all of you. Please feel free to reach out for specific concerns and questions via the conference email address:

Thank You,

The NYSTRA Board
