148th FASNY Annual Meeting

A Focus on Recruitment and Retention - We Teach, We Train, We Serve Together

Albany Hilton
Albany, NY

Our 148th FASNY Annual Meeting is a one-day event in Albany. This will be an Annual Meeting only, as we have decided to forgo most Convention events, including the Convention Speakers Series, Heroes Awards, Past Presidents Meet-and-Greet and the golf tournament.

The purpose of our Annual Meeting is to consider and take action on the matters of the election of the FASNY President, the FASNY First Vice President, the FASNY Second Vice President, two (2) FASNY Directors (Class of 2025) and two (2) Trustees of the FASNY Firemen’s Home; the approval or rejection of the annual budget of the FASNY Firemen’s Home; the approval or rejection of proposed amendments to the Association bylaws; and the transaction of such business as may be properly brought before the meeting. Regular members in good standing, with full dues paid 15 calendar days prior to the Annual Meeting, are able to vote.
