Winter Institute and Lobby Day
The Council also supports its members by providing exceptional opportunities to expand and enrich their expertise and knowledge in the area of educational administration through statewide annual events.
The Winter Institute and Lobby Day offer keynote addresses by national experts in the fields of leadership, education and related areas; opportunities for members to share best practices with colleagues through smaller educational sessions; an interactive discussion with the Commissioner of Education about New York State issues and initiatives; and networking for support and collegiality among members through social interaction, group discussions, meetings and workshops. Each event focuses on a themed event over several days. It wraps up with our annual Lobby Day in downtown Albany where superintendents meet with their regional representatives.
