Your MSSNY Speakers are already looking ahead to our 2022 House of Delegates meeting and making plans. We write to share with you important deadlines and logistical information so that you can plan appropriately.

The 2022 House of Delegates is planned as a LIVE event to be held at the Westchester Marriott Hotel in Tarrytown. This property should be familiar to everyone since it is where the last in-person HOD meeting was held in 2019. In some sense it will be like returning “home.”  Your Speakers are very much looking forward to meeting in-person after such a long hiatus.

The dates for next year’s meeting are later than usual but we believe will work well for all our attendees. 
Those dates are Friday, May 20 through Sunday, May 22. We plan to hold our Ceremony of Presidents Saturday evening and the Presidents’ Dinner Dance Saturday night. If we need to hold a business session briefly on Sunday morning we will be able to do so.

We want to make you all aware of significant deadlines that will be coming up soon:

Credentialing of Delegates
We ask that you provide the names of your delegates to our MSSNY office no later than Thursday, January 27, 2022. 

Please be sure your delegates are bona fide, paid MSSNY members to ensure they can participate. If someone will be serving for the first time, please indicate when you send your delegate credentials. Send credentialing info to:  Michael Reyes

Please provide information about interest your delegates have in serving on a HOD reference committee. Reference committee appointments will be completed around Friday, February 11 and we will want to ensure those who have an interest are considered.

Resolution Deadline
Resolutions will be due no later than Friday, February 25, 2022. Resolutions can be submitted at any time but will be considered late if submitted after close of business (5 PM) on that Friday. Information regarding proper style and other criteria is available by clicking here. Please follow those instructions and most importantly be sure to research the subject matter thoroughly, citing your research and existing MSSNY policy at the end of the resolution.

For now, these two deadlines should be your most critical concerns and we ask that you make a note of them on your calendars.

Because the 2021 HOD was held in September, the time to plan the 2022 meeting is somewhat compressed. Our goal to return to our usual Spring meeting dates for the MSSNY Annual meeting has accelerated our planning, but we are certain the meeting will be well executed and robust.

We wish you all the very best for the Thanksgiving holiday – despite all the current uncertainty and occasional chaos during these times, we have much for which to be grateful.

All our best,

Bill                                       Maria
