The association has numerous social activities for you to enjoy when you want to relax with your fellow business owners. We hold two board meetings – one each in the spring and the fall where we conduct the business of the association. When the meetings are over you can enjoy the company of your colleagues from all across the state. We’ve travelled to Cooperstown, Ithaca, Lake George, Lake Placid, Long Island and others hospitable locales throughout the state to break bread.


We hold a golf outing each year where golfers and duffers alike have a chance to get out on the links and show their best stuff. Prizes are awarded in a variety of categories enabling players of all levels to have a chance to win one of many spectacular gifts. Last year’s outing at Casperkill Golf Club in Poughkeepsie attracted more than 100 players for a great day of golf and fun. Planning is underway for the 2012 Outing – watch this space for more information soon.
