Cooperstown
, NY 13326

 

Please take time to renew your membership.  If you aren’t currently a member, please consider joining CANYS in 2014!

   

The Council on Addictions of New York State, Inc. ( CANYS ) is an organization of community-based prevention, education, intervention and treatment agencies throughout New York State . Our meetings address concerns and issues that affect prevention, treatment and recovery of diseases of addiction. We also support each other on issues related to organizational efficiency.

CANYS continues to grow! As an incorporated statewide organization, we are undertaking projects that support the mission of Council: advocating on local, regional, state and national levels; sharing resources to promote public awareness. Currently, over 85% of Councils in NYS became 2009 paid members, reflecting our growth of 15% over the last several years!  Please take time to renew your membership.  If you aren’t currently a member, please consider joining CANYS in 2014!

A typical CANYS Meeting format…

A CANYS meeting is a wonderful opportunity to network, share with colleagues both the excitement of new program development as well as the challenges we face. Often we will schedule a workshop or information meeting on Thursday afternoon, followed by, a break from our hectic work schedules, with Thursday evening dinner.  The Friday business meeting provides us all with the opportunity to share both successes and challenges, most often finding out that we are not in this alone. Most importantly the strength of the CANYS meeting gives us the opportunity to work together to assure the strength and effectiveness of all community-based prevention, education, intervention and treatment agencies in New York State.

 

 

Please send your 2014 membership to:

Dan Shubsda, Treasurer
Northpointe Council, Inc.
800 Main St., Suite 2A
Niagara Falls , NY 14301

PERSONAL FINDINGS

earthrotate61x1.gif (18661 bytes)

     "CANYS is especially helpful to me. I find mutual support from colleagues who do what I do, it helps me keep current with statewide initiatives, we share ideas and experiences with new prevention curriculums, strategies, etc., find assistance with personal issues, share Fundraising ideas, use the Thursday sessions to solve/address the concerns that we have, and it provides a forum to speak regularly with Jean Miller and Fran Harding."               -- Jim Conklin

      "I am most appreciative of our advocacy and success with "repealing" the 10% holdback of state aid. All in all from the NYSCADA days until now, the group has really functioned as a (mini) support group for executive issues. We have sponsored some trainings and rallied people to the Legislative Day, but mostly it has been support."                               -- Susan Jenkins 

 

 

      "I relish the knowledge and support of existing Directors, and I sit there like a sponge absorbing the information. CANYS keeps me informed about events, assists with things like Council posters, gives us a heads-up on funding and program issues, there is development of friendships, and a sharing of information and support networks. I especially appreciate the influence of the Councils regarding OASAS and other entities (NCADD, Channing Bete)." 
  - - Brad Finn
   

 

 

       "We interface with agency Execs highly skilled in community based prevention work and surf the "public funding" streams. I have been an admirer at how much many of my colleagues have been able to accomplish in their communities. I have received inspiration and guidance from many at CANYS and I am grateful for all of your willingness to share things with me such as policies, procedures, employee manuals, & staffing & salary information. My membership in CANYS has made my work at LICADD much easier. Thank you."               -- Jim Devine

QUOTE OF THE MONTH
:

"Throughout history,
it has been the inaction of those who could have acted;
the indifference of those who should have known better;
the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most;
that has made it possible for evil to triumph."

-Haile Selassie -
