Dear Members, Speakers and Vendors,
NYSHS is in the middle of an unprecedented time in our 48 year history with the current COVID-19 situation. After careful consideration we, as your Board of Directors, have come to the decision to cancel our Spring 2020 Symposium on April 25th at del Lago Resort. We have worked closely with del Lago and they have been incredibly cooperative and have allowed us to cancel our contract without financial penalties. If you have already reserved room with them please call and cancel your reservations. As registrations arrive we will return your checks uncashed as soon as possible. We are working through the details on how to proceed with our Vendors and Speakers, but we wanted to get this word out quickly as many institutions have imposed travel and conference restrictions.
We greatly appreciate the support the you as members have all shown NYSHS over the years, and we promise to make next years’ meeting the best yet. To our Speakers we wish to express our sincere gratitude for your willingness to take time out of your busy schedule to present to our members. Lastly, we wish to thank our Vendors, without each of you we would not be able to continue our meetings and offer the myriad of scholarships that you support to our students.
In this time of unknowns, we as your Board, wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you all in 2021! Please stay tuned for details to follow, and if you have any questions please contact any of us, our information can be easily found on our website: www.nyhisto.com.
