President’s Message


Dear NYSASN Members,

We will be holding our annual General Membership Meeting, for all active members, on Tuesday, December 14, 2021 at 6:00 pm via Zoom. At this meeting we will be voting on two motions to change the bylaws of the association.

The first motion, if passed, will amend the bylaws to include language to permit electronic meetings.  The current bylaws are silent on this, having been written before the age of electronic meetings. The second motion, if passed, will amend the bylaws to change the eligibility criteria regarding NYSASN membership for members who wish to run for the positions of secretary or treasurer.  The motion seeks to decrease the membership requirement from three years to one. We invite all active members to join us on December 14th to hear officer reports and have your voice heard in voting on these motions.

If you wish to attend, please RSVP to me, Jacki O’Donnell, at I will then send you the link to the meeting and copies of the motions that are to be presented.

Thank you.  I look forward to seeing you soon as I preside over my last meeting as NYSASN president.

Jacki O’Donnell
