Student Board

Mission Statement

Make sure to attend the Student NYS CEC Reception, Friday October 20th at the
2017 Annual Conference!
All student members welcome!

Our mission as the Student Association of the New York State CEC is to provide a direct and accessible channel for students to learn and involve themselves with the CEC. We encourage students to learn about the CEC and what it advocates as well as provide events and resources tailored to those studying for a career which may bring them into contact with children with exceptional abilities.

We host an annual student leadership conference each June which takes place at colleges across New York State. This event is an opportunity for students to attend presentations and workshops hosted by active professionals in the field of special education, gain practical tools and materials to further their professional development, and network with other peers and professionals. We also provide an excellent platform to collaborate and learn from other CEC members.
