NYSAFP Calendar

Check out the NYSAFP calendar

In 2022 we established several Resident Meet & Greets across the state based on the model that the Erie County Chapter started in 2011. These meetings held in the Capital District, Long Island, Southern Tier, Westchester, and Syracuse are to help residents meet potential employers and establish ongoing relationships.

Upcoming dates each Fall will be on the calendar.
