As we begin NYSSA’s 2010 fiscal year, the staff and volunteers who bring all of our programs and events to life are continuing their work to provide you with the high caliber offerings you have come to expect from NYSSA. In fiscal year 2009, NYSSA hosted nearly 280 programs and events, 127 of which were member-only or free to members. Of these, an increasing number (41 in total) were career development programs designed to address the growing interest in this topic.

Despite a decrease in the growth of membership and revenue, NYSSA is financially healthy and ready to meet the changing and growing needs of our members.
As noted in Jan Jackrel’s annual report letter to members, the lease on our current facility expires at the end of December. This has given us the opportunity to move to a new, expanded and custom-designed location at 1540 Broadway, one block from our current location. The selection and design of this facility incorporates input from our members via surveys and one-on-one discussions. As I write this note, the design and preparation of NYSSA’s new headquarters is underway, and we anticipate a move to 1540 Broadway in December, with the first programs in the new space scheduled for January 2009.
