The President's Message

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you’re enjoying the holiday season. The competition for the Golden Snowball Award has begun. Ironically, the 7 feet of snow that our friends in Erie Chapter had won’t count. The snow needs to be measured at certain places such as the airport, and only 2 feet of snow fell at their airport—so with the first snow falling in Syracuse, we are a contender. Every year we hope to be the big looser.


Dues Shall become Due and Payable November 1st. AAMA will begin to send out renewal dues notices in September. Your dues must be postmarked to the AAMA by December 31 so that you can vote in the NYSSMA General Assembly, serve as a NYSSMA Officer, or attend the 2015 AAMA Conference as a Delegate.
