Conference Program

June 12, 2010

The SUNYLA 2010 Program is now available. Because of our green initiatives, the full program will only be online. At check-in you will receive pages 1-6 and there will be packets of session descriptions available; however, we’re hoping that you’ll either save the file electronically or share any paper copies with friends.

We will contact you by Wednesday, June 16th at 9pm. You must agree to sit in the front of the auditorium to limit travel time.  You must be present to ask your question.

Estimated Conference Costs

April 12, 2010

As registration comes closer to opening up, I thought I’d provide everyone with estimates of registration and housing costs for June 16-18, 2010 at Brockport:

  • Conference Registration will most likely be somewhere around $40-$50 for members and $80-$90 for non-members
  • On-campus housing will be available for $40/night (in air conditioned townhouses, single occupancy only)
  • The Thursday night dinner and entertainment will be around $30

Conference registration includes two breakfasts (Thursday & Friday), one lunch (Thursday) and one dinner (Wednesday).  Lunch will be available Wednesday and Friday for $9 each.

These prices are estimates, and the final cost may be above or below what is listed; however, we will do our best to make sure that costs remain within the ranges that are listed here.
