Join Our Organization
Agency membership with the NYS Council entitles your organization to all of the news, information, and analysis we provide our members on an almost daily basis. In addition, we often host “Members-Only” training and technical assistance events. We have several partnerships with national consultants resulting in significant discounts for our members interested in professional services provided by these individuals / firms.
New Value Added Benefit: For 2011, all New York State Council members receive an automatic (annual) membership with the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare (our national partners in Washington, DC). This is a $3,100 value.
A National Council membership permits you and your staff to take advantage of significant “member” discounts for National Council conferences, webinars, and other useful events hosted by The National Council.
For more information on a membership with the New York State Council, contact Lauri Cole, Executive Director at (518) 445- 2642.
