    The conference committee is now accepting proposals for the November 2016 meeting that will be held at the Marriott in Albany. 

    If you have a presentation that you have offered to your own campus to support inclusion for students with disabilities in post-secondary education that you think all of NYSDSC would benefit from, or you are inspired by a new approach to serving students with disabilities and want to encourage others, this is a great opportunity to share through a poster session or a workshop session.


     Proposals are due by September 30, 2016!


    A separate online proposal submission must be completed for each proposed session using the Fall 2016 NYSDSC Conference Proposal Form [PDF].


    If you would like to submit for a poster session, please complete the Poster Session Registration Form [PDF].


    If you have questions or suggestions for the upcoming November meeting, please contact:


    Loren E. Nowak
    Upcoming NYSDSC president & Chair of the Conference Planning Committee

     Thank you,

    To all members regardless if attending the June Conference, copies of year end standing and ad hoc committee reports are posted under conference materials for your review.

    Special note:

    The draft of the 2016-2021 Strategic Plan is also posted under conference materials.  This document represents the collective thoughts, ideas and aspirations of those who participated in the strategic planning efforts across the sectors.  The Working Group tasked with creating this living document hopes to have this serve as our foundation, direction and energy to move forward over the next five years.  As a necessary and valued member of this organization I ask that you review the document, share your comments, either at our June Business Meeting or electronically to one of the members of the working group.  Our intent this summer is to discuss, edit if necessary, vote and then implement, effective November 2016.

    Special thanks to Megan Riedl, Chair who had graciously taken over as Chair after Loren Nowak needed to step aside due to unforeseen health concerns.

    Working Group Members:

    Nancy Carr, Tamara Mariotti, Kateri Henkel, Leslie Reid, Merrill Parra, Stephan Charles Pierre, Debbie Dimitrovski, Kristin Harte and Loren Nowak.  Without their hard work and commitment this living document would not have come to fruition!


    Paula Possenti-Perez, Immediate Past NYSDSC President
