On behalf of the NYSUT School-Related Professionals Advisory Committee, you are invited to attend the 39th Annual NYSUT SRP LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE to be held October 20-22, 2017 at The Desmond Hotel in Albany, New York.

Don’t miss this opportunity to grow as an SRP leader! Union activism has never been more important. With a diverse program offering more than 35 meetings and workshops, this year’s conference focuses on tools and strategies for strengthening your local and empowering your members.  Join your SRP colleagues from around the state to share issues and concerns. SRPs make a difference. Now, more than ever, make your voice count!


NYSUT pays 50% of the conference-related costs. This allows us to keep fees lower, allowing many locals to attend this event. After NYSUT's contribution, conference registration fees for individual participants are:

The NYSUT SRP conference continues its spirit of generosity.  We ask your local to bring a door prize for the Sunday morning drawing.  The variety and imagination shown in these prize baskets always makes them a conference highlight.

Baskets donated by locals represented on the SRP Advisory Committee will be raffled on Saturday evening. The proceeds from the sale of Saturday’s raffle tickets will go to NYSUT's Disaster Relief Fund, which has helped hundreds of union families since its creation.

We will also continue another proud SRP tradition: collecting  new books for elementary age school children which are donated to a school library in New York.  Please visit the “Book Donation” link for suggested book titles. Thank you in advance for your contributions!
