Hosted on Gather.Town

NYSACC's annual Conference on the Environment (COE) is in a different city every year. This year, the COE is everywhere, as we've selected a virtual platform for both attendee safety and ease of participation.

An intuitive virtual platform that merges video conferencing with movements through space, Gather allows your avatar to stroll through conference rooms, video chat with other participants singly or in groups, listen to speakers, and peruse materials at exhibitor or CAC tables. All this, without having to leave your couch!

What is NYSACC?

The New York State Association of Conservation Commissions is an independent, not-for-profit education organization established in 1971 by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to provide leadership in the development of vital environmental programs for cities, towns, and villages throughout the State of New York. We bring together millions of people—government officials, environmentalists, students, and citizens—committed to preserving, protecting, and enhancing the built and natural environments in New York communities.
