The 35th anniversary conference of the New York State Athletic Administrators’ Association is fast approaching and the conference planning team under President, Murphee Hayes, CAA, are working hard to bring our membership another first class conference program in keeping to the theme of “Every Child Deserves A Champion.” This is a very special year for the NYSAAA. Our current President, Murphee Hayes, CAA is the first female president in the 35 years since our first conference. It is also the 35th anniversary of our first conference for high school athletic administrators, held in Liverpool, NY in 1983. With that in mind, our association has some very special things planned for this special year. We’ve gone to great expense to bring in some outstanding national keynote speakers who will bring home the conference theme to all our attendees. We will also provide some very special gifts and events to commemorate this special year.
