2023 NYSIDDDNA Annual Conference
September 11-13, 2023 | Albany Marriott

The NYS ID/DD Nurses Association (NYSIDDDNA) will be hosting the NYSIDDDNA 2023 Annual Conference September 11-13, 2023 at the Albany Marriott. We will be returning to a three-day conference with sessions offered on Monday afternoon, all day Thursday, and Friday morning. Specific information about the schedule of programs and the registration fees will be posted on this page in April 2023.

Hosting the Annual Conference provides the Association with the opportunity to meet its primary purpose, which is to promote the professional development of nurses interested in individuals who are intellectually and/or developmentally disabled.

The Planning Committee will solicit program proposals and select programs for the Annual Conference. The feedback received from attendees at the 2022 Annual Conference will provide suggestions for topics and speakers. We encourage all of our members to share ideas for topics and/or speakers. This is your opportunity to have an influence on the programs offered. We welcome your ideas. Please share your suggestions by emailing   


The Call for Proposals is now open. We recommend submitting your proposal by Monday, March 20, 2023. Proposals will continue to be accepted after this date as space allows.
