Join us for the 2017 SBMW

November 14-17, 2017

The Desmond Hotel & Conference Center
660 Albany Shaker Road, Albany, NY 12211 

Registrations are now being accepted for the School Business Management Workshop to be held at The Desmond in Colonie, November 14-17, 2017. SBMW will address the needs of the school district and BOCES business offices throughout New York State.

BOCES • District Clerk • District Treasurer • Payroll / Personnel • SBO Fiscal

All strands of the workshop will be offered at The Desmond Hotel Albany. Once again, we are using a format to accommodate the five strands. You may see in the schedule that your strand does not have a session at every time slot. This format will allow you to join other strands’ sessions that may be of interest to you or take a break. If you have any questions about this format, please contact NYSASBO. Participants should register for the workshop upon arrival at the The Desmond. For those arriving Tuesday evening, please join us for the Welcome Reception. If you are arriving Wednesday morning, please plan to register early so you are ready for your first session (see schedule). Districts and BOCES are encouraged to send multiple representatives and register early.

In an effort to "go green," printed binders will not be available at this workshop. All meals are à la carte and must be purchased in advance. 

Registration Cost: $199 Member / $249 Non-Member
