2022 ALPHA Conference Registration


 2022 mini-Beyond First Year Regional ALPhA Conference

New York Region


We are looking forward to your attendance at the mBFY conference for the ALPhA New York Region on Friday, June 17. We will have a fantastic group of regional colleagues coming together for discussions, workshops on advanced lab experiments, and talks about the advanced lab.


You should plan to arrive between 9-9:30 a.m. and park in the Shango or Haggarty Administration Building parking lots, which are a short walk from Science Hall. We will meet on the first floor of Science Hall for registration and breakfast and then get started at 9:30 a.m. 


Workshops, Talks, and Networking:
The primary goals of this conference are learning, sharing, and networking. ALPhA members from the New York region and nearby states will be presenting workshops on an advanced lab topic and discussing teaching strategies and experiments. All participants will generate ideas on particular topics relevant to teaching in the advanced lab and share them with the group.
