NYSAIS Professional Learning in 2020-21

Colleagues,

We know you are working to plan for your school’s re-opening in the fall, in whatever form that will take. We know how difficult these decisions are to make when there is so much uncertainty, and so many unanswerable questions.

It is with this in mind that we at NYSAIS have decided to postpone all in-person professional learning until the academic year 2021-22. Instead, all NYSAIS professional learning (conferences, symposia, institutes, and workshops) will continue to be offered online in a flexible program of eSeminars, Roundtables, Online Conferences, and other events to meet the needs of your community.

This decision follows a great deal of consideration in consultation with the NYSAIS Board of Trustees, and we think it will help schools in a number of ways. The program will be affordable and will give attendees a safer and more flexible way to continue their professional growth during this pandemic. 

We are open to your suggestions and feedback as we develop these online programs. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your ideas for topics, speakers, and formats that would be useful to you and your school. 

In addition, the registration process for all of our professional learning events is now through a system called MemberSuite. This system allows you to create an account and register for multiple events at one time, among other features. Please find instructions for creating an account and registering here. If you need help with this process, please use this support ticket which will go directly to Andrew Cooke and Maria Flores Seibert.

With gratitude for your work during this time of uncertainty and opportunity,

The NYSAIS Team
