Hello, fellow Tax Receivers and Collectors,
I am sure you will agree that 2020 has been challenging due to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic. It has affected the way we do just about everything, and our new “normal” looks very different than it did before this viral outbreak.
As you know, due to strict restrictions and safety concerns, we canceled our 2020 Training Seminar. We, the Directors of our New York State Association of Tax Receivers and Collectors, are now figuring out what may be the best and safest option for our members for training opportunities in 2021.
As we have no clear guidance at this time as to when a large group may be allowed to safely convene again, and taking into consideration the wellbeing of our members, we have decided it is best to share with you now that we will not be hosting an in-person Training Seminar in 2021. This event takes multiple months to plan and coordinate. We felt that with so many unknowns, which is likely to be the case well into the year 2021, it was best for us to focus our efforts and energy on planning alternate training possibilities.
We recently (November 20, 2020) emailed a survey, please take a minute or two to complete this short survey. So we can have a better idea of what and how future training will be made available to you.
The deadline for completing this brief survey is 12/15/2020.
Once all responses have been reviewed, we will brainstorm how we will approach training options for 2021. Stay tuned, and thank you for your understanding.
Stay safe and be well,
