LWVNYS Students Inside Albany

Students Inside Albany Conference Cancelled

We are incredibly sad to report that we will be cancelling the 2020 Students Inside Albany Conference. We aren’t sure when schools will be open again, and even if they are, we fear that the teachers and students will be so stressed trying to get everything done for the year. We have decided it is better to just cancel now rather than wait until later.
