The PA is proud to be the very first community college local to receive a Local Action Project grant from NYSUT. NYSUT’s Local Action Project (LAP) is the statewide union’s coalition building and community outreach initiative. We began drafting a LAP grant proposal in October 2001 and were accepted in Spring 2002.
We completed the three-year grant program in 2004, which featured a graduation presentation at the annual LAP Conference. Looking back at our 2002, 2003, and 2004 activities, we feel that our LAP participation has been successful, we fully intend to continue our LAP initiatives, and we will continue growing our union!

In 2017, the PA was again accepted to LAP. Many things have changed since our first time around and we felt it was important to reinvigorate the Professional Association with the changes in legislation and attacks on unionism in general.
