In response to the coronavirus SANYS has taken precautions to best promote the health and well being of everyone. Each region has reduced staff for the next two weeks. Our regional coordinators are communicating any scheduling changes directly within each region. So you may find that some meetings will be happening by phone or video conference or may be temporarily postponed. If you have questions regarding SANYS events and regional office hours please contact your Regional Coordinator. We look forward to resuming full staffing and activities as usual in the near future.
The Self Advocacy Association is looking for a logo for its 2014 Statewide Conference that reflect the theme for this year's event:
"Transforming the System:Reinvesting in US!"
For example: what does the future for services look like? What would it mean if the government reinvested more dollars in services that support people with disabilities to live richer lives? What would your world look like if this happened? What kind of choices would you make in your daily life?
Self-Advocate Artists can make the logo design through painting or drawing (color submissions only, no digital artwork or photography). Please take a picture of your artwork and e-mail the photo in a jpeg format (highest resolution possible) to:
Artwork must be received no later than AUGUST 29TH, 2014
Make sure that you include your name, telephone number and address and a brief description of your ideas for the piece and how you made it. If you need help to submit your logo design, please contact your local SANYS Region.
A PRIZE OF $250 WILL BE AWARDED
TO THE ARTIST WHOSE LOGO IS CHOSEN.
Artwork selected will be showcased at the statewide conference and used in promotions for the event.
Please note family members of SANYS staff, board members and employees of The Self-Advocacy Association of NYS are not eligible to enter the logo contest.
