28th Annual Educational Conference

October 19 - 21, 2020
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will not be able to host our usual in-person conference.  We will be hosting an on-line seminar that will offer up to 19 hours of in-service training.  All state mandated categories will be offered and all classes will be state certified - this means there will be no additional paperwork you will need to complete for state credit toward your required 24 hours of in-service training needed annually.
To register for the conference, go to - all registration for the educational component of the conference must be done electronically.  We are confident you will find this process streamlined and convenient, and once you have registered you will receive a confirmation email.

To thank everyone that has participated and supported our Educational Conferences we are offering a flat rate registration of $50/person.  For this flat rate you can attend as many or as few classes as you need - you will need to be sure to attend classes that will meet your required categories. There will be no additional costs for this conference.  There will be a link to process payment on-line via credit card or payment may submitted via postal mail.
We will be offering a practice session ahead of the conference to ensure that you are ready for the virtual experience.  A link will be emailed to you for this session and we encourage you to attend to smooth out any wrinkles prior to the training sessions.  Only persons that have registered at will receive links to the WebEx sessions and if not registered your scans may not be reported to NYS.

Our goal remains to make sure that training opportunities are provided and that we meet the need of Code Enforcement Officers statewide.  All courses have been designed to assist building & fire officials and design professionals in their daily jobs and all courses have been approved and accredited to meet the requirements of Title 19 NYCRR for Code Enforcement In-service Training.  This year’s tentative schedule is below and offers up to 19 hours of credit.
