Well another year is upon us, and our annual conference is looking around the corner. From April 9-12, 2015 historians from around the state will converge on Corning and enjoy the sessions, each other’s company and the opportunity to work with members from MANY and other groups as APHNYS works to be a partner with other history agencies across the state.
Both in 2015 with MANY and 2016 with the New York State Family History Conference in Syracuse, APHNYS has begun the process of coordinating its conference to coincide with other groups. We will continue to be a sponsor of the Conference on New York State History, this year in Niagara Falls. We realize that we are better by working together. As historians we share many of the same interests and we become better as our jobs by learning together.
Also in 2016, we will be moving our conference back to the fall to that the members will be voting on our budget and we will coincide our elections to that new terms will start on January 1. This gives the members more control of their organization.
If you haven’t been a member of APHNYS before, or you stopped a few years ago, take a moment to read our newsletters, attend a meeting, and join your organization.
Gerry Smith, President
