It is very important for SAANYS members to vote on November 7, 2017 and oppose holding a NYS Constitutional Convention. SAANYS will be holding forums throughout the state, during the last weeks in October, to provide our members and any other interested parties information as to why their vote is important. If a NYS Constitutional Convention is held, anything in the Constitution may be amended, revised, and new items may be added. This is a huge issue for educators. Items in the Constitution that could be impacted include the provision of a free public education, pensions, collective bargaining, and the independence of the Board of Regents. Each of these could have serious consequences. Please consider attending a forum to discuss why your VOTE is so important!
