NYS Council 2020 Membership Renewal

May 11, 2020

TO: NYS Council Members

FROM: NYS Council Board of Directors

We are all facing such unprecedented times during this pandemic as we struggle to provide services to our care recipients, retain our staff, and keep everyone safe and healthy. We are also faced with the fiscal realities of today and the concerns for the future. But now, more than ever, we need to stand together as we face the ever-challenging times that lie ahead for our sector.  

That is why we are writing to request that if you have not yet renewed your membership with the NYS Council that you do so at this time.    

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, the NYS Council had been at the forefront of advocating on our behalf. Little did we know what we were going to be faced with. And, the NYS Council has continued to work tirelessly to ensure that mental health and substance use disorder/addiction providers are a priority and that we have the financial, staffing, and equipment resources that we need. We hope you will continue to support the organization that continues to support us!

As a reminder, the NYS Council does not send out invoices to each organization but instead we send our 2020 Dues Calculation Worksheet as well as our blank 2020 Invoice for you to complete. These forms allow you to calculate the amount of your membership dues.

If you have any questions, or would like to make special arrangements for your dues payment for this year, please contact Lauri Cole at 518-461-8200 or at lauri@nyscouncil.org.

Thank you for your continued membership and support!
