This year, NYSAE celebrates its 100th birthday. Help us mark this milestone achievement by attending our Gala luncheon on Wednesday, March 6 at the NY Marriott Marquis in Times Square! Find out more at: https://www.100.nysaenet.org.

Letter from the Chair

NYSAE: a Toast to Its Second Century...

By Raphael Badagliacca

At his 100th birthday celebration, the comedian George Burns addressed the gathering by saying, "I'm pleased to be here! At my age, I'm pleased to be anywhere!" 100 years is certainly a milestone. Everything does not thrive for 100 years. We are all pleased to be celebrating NYSAE's 100th year.
