Coming Events

The All-Academy Annual Business Meeting formerly scheduled for Thursday, April 2, 2020 is cancelled, as is the Annual Spring Lecture. Due to the current risks of the COVID-19 virus spread and the edict by NY State Governor Andrew Cuomo banning large gatherings, we have decided that it is in our members’ best interest to not hold this large public meeting.
