Our annual fall meeting and marketplace is October 25–27 at the Villa Roma Resort and Conference Center in Callicoon, New York, located in New York’s beautiful Catskill Region.

This meeting continues to increase in participation every year. And, BANY is only a phone call or email away for any questions, issues or concerns that you as a member may have. Over the last two years, the board of directors has focused on the continued growth and strength of our association. It is exciting to say that our membership has grown and our prominence in the industry is on the rise. These achievements are due to the hard work of BANY members. A “thank you“ to all of you for supporting our association. It is the strength of its members that makes an association all that it can be.
