November 8: New Website Launching Soon - Annual Meeting Photos

Heads Up! Our New Website Will Launch Soon...

We wanted to let you know that we will be going live with our new website shortly - likely before next week's newsletter comes out!
Stay tuned to our News Posts and social media - there will be a much more detailed introduction posted when we go live. For now a special shout out and thank you to Rachele Markle who spearheaded the project for NYSTIA, and to Bren Jobe, who lead the Corporate Communications team in developing the site with us.
The new website provides numerous improvements in user functionality, content management, and more. It represents a major investment in time and resources to better prepare NYSTIA to serve its members in the future. - Bob Provost
