What do you know about the possibility of a NY State CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION? On Nov. 7, 2017, the people of NYS will be asked: “Shall there be a convention to revise the constitution and amend the same?” This question appears on the ballot every 20 years under the New York State Constitution (Article 19, §2).  Amending the NYS Constitution MAY NOT be beneficial.

It is imperative that we continually remind our state leaders the importance of directing NYS tax-dollars to SUNY, to support our SUNY campuses, our 4 SUNY HSCs, our 3 SUNY hospitals and our LI State Vets Home. CONSIDER donating to VOTE/COPE our political action fund. As little as a dollar a paycheck ($26 annually) will ensure that we have the funds we need to advocate on behalf of our patients, our students, our communities, and our members.
