Due to low registration numbers, the decision has been made to cancel the 2016 Community College Institute at this time. We apologize to all registrants and confirmed program presenters; we will be in touch soon to process and owed registration costs. We are very appreciative of those people who had already registered and we hope to see you at a future CSPA-NYS PD event.

We'd like to express our sincere thanks to Cliff Scutella, CCI Chair, for his leadership of this event. Planning is already underway for a future event that will allow this very important topic to be discussed. More information will be shared as it is made available.
