The NYSALJA Web Site became operational at nysalja.org and nysalja.com on August 1, 2002. It was was originally designed by Justina R. Cintrón, Esq. Since 2002, Internet web design tools have come a long way. For some time we’ve been thinking about an overhaul. As fate would have it, we’ve been down for the last couple of months due to technical difficulties. So, we decided to take advantage of the “down time.”
NYSALJA.ORG is finally back with a new look. And thanks to the geniuses at WordPress, we have some powerful tools that should make it easier for us to provide you with up-to-date info, interactive news posts, and better graphics. In the near future we’ll probably be posting videos and, who knows, maybe even offering an MCLE course or two!
Let us know what you think. We welcome your suggestions for improvements or additions. Feel free to contact any Executive Committee Member with your ideas.
Please don’t forget to visit us often. We’re here for you!
The NYSALJA Executive Committee has proposed increasing the Annual Dues from $45.00 to $50.00. This modest increase will benefit the Association in two ways:
- It will place the NYS Affiliate on more stable financial footing.
- It will bring the New York State Affiliate into line with the National Association’s membership fee (which is $50.00), which will streamline our bookkeeping responsibilities, currently performed by our (volunteer) Treasurer.
If approved, this dues increase will become effective at the beginning of the new fiscal year, July 1, 2010.
NYSALJA Bylaws require a majority vote of the active membership to change the Annual Membership Fee.
