Dear NYSHS Members

It is with regret that I am sending this email, to inform you that the New York State Histotechnological Society (NYSHS) will be cancelling our annual spring meeting.  With a number of speakers dropping out, it is impossible to fulfill CEU requirements.

NYSHS will be meeting as your Board of Directors in April to discuss the future path of our society.  Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thank you to our members and vendors for many years of continued support.


Sarah Mack
