NYCATA/UFT AT NAEA2022MARCH 3-5, 2022

NYCATA hosted a NYC welcome table at this year's conference.  It was wonderful to meet and help out so many of our dedicated collegues from NY and from around the country.  Our Gratitude goes out to the NAEA as well as our friends at NYSATA for making this years conference a success!
