2022 District 1 Conference

Oct. 2 - 4, 2022
Syracuse, NY


Fall for Syracuse

There's nothing like fall in Central New York; crisp air and changing colors everywhere, the smell of pumpkin spice, and the sound of crunching leaves. Grab a cozy flannel and join us for apples, pumpkins, craft beers, and creativity at the 2022 District 1 conference. 

Connect with colleagues from across District 1 while enjoying one of the best-kept secrets in New York. Take an opportunity to refresh in the cool temperatures of fall and step back to harvest new ideas and inspiration for the future.

This year's conference is at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, a hotel with a rich history brought back to its glory recently with a $75 million renovation. Originally opened as The Hotel Syracuse in August 1924, the property was deemed 'The Grand Lady' hosting five US Presidents and countless celebrities, including John Lennon, who celebrated his 30th birthday with a week-long stay. Located in the heart of downtown the property is just a few steps away from theaters, music, dining, great shopping, and an exciting nightlife. 

Mark your calendars and join us this October, see you in Syracuse!
