50 Years of CSPA-NYS

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the College Student Personnel Association of New York State.  This tremendous milestone will be recognized through a year-long celebration kicking off in Buffalo, NY at the 2016 Annual Conference and culminating in Corning, NY at the 2017 Annual Conference.  The year of celebration will include a series of special events and initiatives focused on engaging with both current and past members of the association's rich history.  To facilitate this planning, the CSPA-NYS board has approved the creation of a 50th Anniversary Task Force.
