Conference in Lake Placid a success

From an opening talk on the science of crisis communication by Dr. Vincent Covello to a closing plenary on the art of photography by Nancie Battaglia, great sessions suffused the 2014 SUNYCUAD conference in Lake Placid. Around 225 attendees enjoyed an outstanding program that even included Olympics hockey hero Buzz Schneider (top scorer in the 1980 Miracle on Ice team) and potential Olympian/junior luge standout Tristan Jeskanen. You can peruse the schedule overview, check out our detailed session schedule and read bios of our speakers.

A Message from SUNYCUAD President Dan Doyle

Dear Colleagues,

With the New Year upon us, the Board of Directors for SUNYCUAD is working hard to advance the goals of your professional organization. 

Get involved! A message from SUNYCUAD President Dan Doyle

Dear Colleagues,

When I reflect on the value that SUNYCUAD has given me, it all comes down to the conversations. Through this organization I’ve been introduced to individuals from nearly every SUNY campus, and each and every conversation has expanded my network and given me a broader perspective than I was ever able to develop within the walls of my own institution.
