Fresh Bites Spring Edition 2022

Executive Director’s Message


Pick Me!

Dear NYSNA Members, The snow is almost gone my friends and flowers and sunshine are just around the corner. Every spring issue I get excited to tell you about my work anniversary – and this is YEAR #8! It’s important for me to pause and think about this each year because it serves as a reminder that time flies when you #LoveWhatYouDo. Thank you for being such amazing humans and putting some good into this world – I am proud to work with you. NYSNA LEGISLATIVE ACTION CONFERENCE The 2022 NYSNA LAC was virtual this year, and because of that there was an opportunity for more members to attend and see what this conference is all about. We had the highest attendance we have ever had, and a lot of first timers. The program was phenomenal, and attendees could see and hear how they were supported by so many allied organizations. But it’s so important to connect throughout the year and not just one day. Our PP&L committee will tell you all about the LAC and follow up that is needed in this issue. Reach out if you want to know more or to get involved! 2022 CONFERENCE I am excited about the 2022 conference this year! This will be the WELCOME BACK event of the decade! Mark your calendars and get ready for innovation like you have never seen before. The conference committee has reimagined what conference can be… I hope you are all enjoying the digital magazine we have for you and all of the interactive features this platform offers. Be sure to share your amazing stories and successes with your peers and your family. These articles are simply amazing. As always, thank you for all that you do.
