NYSAIS Residential Conferences

NYSAIS hosts over 15 residential conferences every year, with most occurring at the Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz. These annual events are mostly aimed at offering opportunities for professional learning and collaboration to individual constituent groups, such as our Conference for Heads of School, Business Affairs Conference, and Conference for Admissions Professionals.

Online registration will open two months prior to each conference. Look for an email announcement or check the NYSAIS Professional Learning Calendar.



The Mohonk Mountain House will be undergoing major renovation construction from January through June. 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 here.

Alternate lodging information: Here are a few hotel options we can recommend in New Paltz:

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