NY/NJ Manager/Educator Conference

Claire Aloan, MS, RRT-NPS, AE-C, FAARC

  • Developed 25 years ago by Ken Wyka from New Jersey (later moved to NY) and Patty Hyland from New York
  • Goal: forum for managers and educators to share information, to maintain contacts with state society leadership, and to provide a networking opportunity
  • Limited space to encourage small groups and maximum ability to interact
  • Solicited vendor support to offset cost
  • Brief attempt to incorporate other neighboring states, not successful
conference facility
Conference Facility
  • Winterclove Inn in the Catskills for all except two years; moved down the road due to some changes in Winterclove management but came back.
  • No phones or TVs in rooms, and limited rooms means some share and some are in an annex nearby
  • Somewhat isolated location but easily accessed from both NY and NJ
  • Attendees do not leave the site, all meals in common, on site activities primarily “on the porch”, also have musical entertainment, bon fire, “resort bowling”
  • Very informal setting, comfortable and relaxing

participants feedback
Participants Feedback
  • Best conference for networking, especially across job functions (manager, educator, home care, vendor)
  • Vendors really like ability to speak to participants as a group
  • Friendships made at Round Top have endured for years; look forward to coming back each year to catch up and learn new information
  • Great way to know what is going on at the state and national professional society levels, with opportunity to ask questions and give feedback
  • Not a huge moneymaker
  • Any profit after expenses is split evenly between New York and New Jersey
  • Used to be split based on attendance from each state but now attendance is fairly equal so just split evenly
