Hudson Valley leaders possess the talent to overcome obstacles in the COVID-19 era. Our region serves as a magnet for creativity, and has become a model for the pursuit of new ideas and inventive projects amid a spirit of neighborly collaboration and beautiful natural surroundings.

At our fifth Hudson Valley Future Summit, local leaders share the strategies their organizations apply to produce successful results, while committing to a culture that fosters a more inclusive, diverse, and respectful working environment. There will be a 15 minute Q&A session at the end.

The Summit demonstrates the College’s role as a cultural hub in the Hudson Valley, generating conversation and new ideas for promoting sustainable growth and prosperity in the region.

General admission is complimentary. A $10.00 donation is suggested to support educational opportunities for SUNY New Paltz students.
