Frequently Asked Questions About Students Inside Albany:
How do you choose the students that will attend SIA? Since each student is a representative of a local League and their community, the local League sets the criteria for sending a student. Each student may be asked to write about the conference for their sponsoring local League’s bulletin and may also be asked to be a special guest at one of their meetings.
Is there any cost to the student? No, LWVNYSEF, along with our cosponsors, pays for the entire conference, which includes lodging, meals and snacks.
The local League that sponsors the student, is responsible for arranging and paying for transportation to and from the conference.
How much time will I miss from school? The conference starts on a Sunday afternoon and ends on Wednesday afternoon. So, the student will miss two, possibly three days of school.
