2020 CONFERENCE - Molloy College

In regard to recent public health concerns relating to COVID-19, and in coordination with Molloy College, the Nassau Zone has cancelled our mini-conference on Friday March 20.

This decision was made out of concern for the overall well being of our attendees, presenters and presiders, as well as the communities of everyone involved in the conference.  Our number one priority is everyone’s safety, so we are doing our part to try and limit the spread of a virus that could become a serious health risk, especially for specific groups of people.
