Nineteen FA members made the 400+ mile round trip to the Gideon Putnam in Saratoga Springs from October 28-30 for the 38th annual NYSUT Community College Conference.

Members attended workshops on labor history (read first-time attendee Michael Iasilli's reflections) communications, collective bargaining, national issues, member engagement, legal issues, community college finances, adjunct issues and, of course, political action.

As shown below our attendees represent a range of positions at the college, as the FA is committed to encouraging activism from members across the three campuses and from a variety of perspectives.

To learn more about and become more active in the FA, contact Anita in the FA office by email ( or phone (631-451-4151) or contact any one of your elected FA officers or Executive Council representatives.
