Professional Learning Changes in response to  COVID-19

March 16, 2020

We hope you are well at this trying time. The NYSAIS Staff has been working closely with representatives at the venues where we host our conferences and workshops to implement the recommendations of federal and local health officials to limit the exposure to and spread of COVID-19. With the current CDC recommendation that groups over 50 people do not meet at this time, we are actively developing plans for our residential conferences scheduled to take place at Mohonk Mountain House in April to transition to online conferences. We plan to continue to support our schools and meet member needs at this difficult time, and hope you will be able to participate in this revised format.

We are currently working with conference facilitators to develop plans to present the content online. We are looking at all options and will do our best to keep the disruption of our program to a minimum. Please note: currently these events are not canceled, simply presented differently. We recognize that this online participation will not be possible for everyone, and we hope that you will be among the pioneers who are able to attend virtually. It should be a fascinating experience. 

You may have received communication directly from Mohonk Mountain House about a refund of your reservation. Please note: this affects your room and board only.

Please cancel your NYSAIS conference or workshop registration only if you are sure that the online experience will not be possible for you. Here is our cancellation policy.

  • Cancellation of a registration via email to for any (or no) reason, with a full refund, may always be made up until 10 calendar days prior to an event.

  • Within the 10-days of the event, we provide refunds (no questions asked) if:

    • the event is canceled and not postponed or presented online

We look forward to returning to our normal in-person conference and workshop schedule as soon as possible. Meanwhile will keep you posted regarding cancellations, and plans for moving events online.
