ESSAE - NYSAE Advocacy Day

When:  May 7, 2024 from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM (ET)

NYSAE members and guests are encouraged to join members of ESSAE for a day in Albany. You do not need to have experience in advocacy work to attend. The ESSAE Government Relations Committee is setting up all the appointments for the day and will place you in a group of colleagues.

The goal of the ESSAE - NYSAE Advocacy Day is to raise awareness of the importance and impact of associations to the life and success of New York State, as well as heighten awareness by elected officials that NYSAE and ESSAE are the “go-to” resources on all matters relating to associations in New York State.

Whether you are a veteran of the Hill or a first-timer, Advocacy Day will prepare you. Should you have a connection with a particular Legislator, let us know that too, as it will help us further our message.

  • We will hold an orientation session to discuss our plans and key talking points.
  • Attendees will receive a “Know-Before-You-Go” packet with key materials and information

There is no registration cost to join the event. Come dressed for success - and ready to talk about what you do each day - and the power of associations in New York State!

Please note all registration for Association Advocacy Day will be handled through For additional information, please visit ESSAE's Advocacy Day page.
