ABOUT US

The New York State Conference of Italian-American Legislators is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization comprised of current Senate and Assembly members promoting the rich history and contributions of their Italian heritage.

The Conference recognizes and celebrates Italian-American heritage with events, scholarships, legislation, and community partnerships.

ITALIAN-AMERICAN CONFERENCE DINNER 
MAY 24, 2021

Members of the Italian-American Conference of State Legislators enjoyed an evening together at the Italian Community Center in Troy, NY. We were disappointed to have to cancel our Annual Italian Festa but we were excited to gather together and acknowledge this year's four scholarship recipients via Zoom. We are looking forward to the 2022 Festa event.


Thank you to our friends at the ICC for their outstanding food and hospitality.
