NYSAIS Residential Conferences

The Mohonk Mountain House will be undergoing major renovation construction from January through June 2024. There will be limited rooms available in the NYSAIS room block during this time. 

Double occupancy is strongly suggested.

For those conferences where registration exceeds the room block, a waitlist will be established.  Details of the waitlist will be posted on the event page.

If you choose to stay elsewhere, you still need to register for the conference and sign-up as a “day guest” at Mohonk.
