Join us for NYSBCA's 66th Annual Convention October 14-15th, 2020

Due to the continued uncertainty associated with the coronavirus pandemic, and the varying comfort levels of individuals, NYSBCA has decided to move its Annual Convention and Annual Membership Meeting into a virtual event this year, so that many more attendees will be able to participate -- without having to travel and with significantly less expenditures. Mark your calendar to participate in our jam-packed, interactive, 2-day event, followed by our Annual Membership Meeting.

Please review the information below and if you have any questions, call (518) 220-9905 or email Jennifer Bruce at info@NYSBCA.com.

All meetings will be held by ZOOM. To familiarize yourself with ZOOM, view some of the following links:
