MESSAGE FROM THE CEANY PRESIDENT
Dear CEANY Colleagues,
I want to take the opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year. May it be full of success and fulfillment in your personal and professional lives. Over the past eight years I have had the pleasure of serving as a board member at CEANY. As of January 2023 I am honored to begin serving as President of this amazing association for the next two years.
With over 600 members across New York State, we are a strong and vital association focused on being your “go-to” professional resource for continuing education and workforce development. CEANY makes this possible with over 18 dedicated volunteer board members and a strong group of sponsors.
Last year, many of us resumed the in-person work that we enjoy and love. We were thrilled to have so many of you join us in Rochester, NY for the annual conference this past November to “Capture the Moment,” and to recharge and reconnect. Also, many of our members took advantage of our virtual engagements, whether it was at the Spring Tri-Region conference last April, the new CEANY Chats, or the various professional development webinars we offered, like Work Life Wellness, the Importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Creating a Sense of Belonging or Creating a High-Quality Micro-Credential Program.
Now, it is time to look ahead as we set new objectives and priorities for the upcoming year and commit ourselves to implementing them. I look forward to us building upon the work of my predecessors to reinforce the commitment of expanding membership, strengthening our committee work, and enhancing professional development opportunities as well as diversifying the topics and themes.
CEANY strives to focus on enriching your experience as members, so we are always open to feedback on our current services and how we can best serve you. Feel free to reach out to any of our board members if you have ideas or if interested in being more involved in the organization.
I look forward to seeing you at a future CEANY webinar, conference, or virtual social events. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn to see the latest news, shared stories, and successes from members.
Best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2023!
