NYSTA to hold Annual Conference Virtually

Given the current state of affairs, the NYSTA Board of Directors has made the decision to hold it Annual Conference virtually. Originally scheduled for June 3-5, then postponed until August 26-28 in Saranac Lake, we now know that in-person gatherings the size of our Annual Conference will not be able to happen in August.  To adjust to this, we have scheduled our Conference from August 24-28, having virtual panels discussing everything from the Pandemic & what this has meant for telcos to the Washington Update, the opportunities for telcos with 5G to Telemedicine.  In addition on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, we will have a virtual trade show!  Please come out & support our many Associate members.  Registration is per company, just send the link to the person that needs to know more about the topic.  You can have as many employees login, as you wish.  


In the meantime, be safe.
