SUNY Fredonia
President Elect and 2013 Conference Chair


Believe it or not we are only a few short months away from our 43rd annual conference being held this year at beautiful Woodcliff Hotel and Spa in Rochester, NY. The entire conference committee is working diligently to ensure that it is as educational and professionally beneficial as possible. This year’s conference will include extended time for round-table discussions surrounding the issues that matter most to our members. Please consider submitting a program idea as well as volunteering on one of our many committees that helps to plan the conference.

The annual conference is a huge undertaking and it requires the help of a great number of our members to make it successful. Volunteering for the conference is a great way to get involved in SUNYCAP. My own  experience with the SUNYCAP board started by volunteering at the 2008 conference, having a background in photography I volunteered to shoot the conference and put together the slide show. We are looking for individuals who are willing to give some time and share their talents with us. We are always looking for help with conference registration, securing vendors, technology (setting up projectors and rooms), moderating sessions and round-tables, fundraising (helping to solicit donations of prizes for the conference fundraiser), publishing the conference, publicity, and a conference photographer (I don't think I'll be able to run the conference and take photos as well this year).

A formal call for volunteers will be sent in the coming weeks. As aways if there are questions please contact me at or 800-252-1212.
