Greetings Colleagues,

It continues to be an honor and privilege for me to serve in the position as the ACT President after being re-elected at the 2021 ACT Conference. We have all learned to adjust to a very challenging environment and to appreciate many things we once took for granted.

ACT continues to be dedicated to the State University system in which we serve and to our commitment to continue moving forward in a positive, safe, and healthy manner during a global pandemic. We truly appreciate the ongoing support of the SUNY Board of Trustees Chairman, Dr. Merryl H. Tisch, and SUNY Interim Chancellor Deborah F. Stanley.

As valuable advocates and influencers for the State University and our individual campuses, communication is even more important today to our students, faculty, staff and communities. ACT members are in the position to serve as timely and knowledgeable voices for our campuses and strongly encourage our members to communicate updates to the organization so accomplishments can be shared widely.

We encourage Council members to volunteer and support ACT committees and to continue sharing your ideas. The ACT Executive Committee meets regularly throughout the year along with our other committees.

The next ACT Annual Conference, including our annual Scholarship Ceremony, will be October 14-16, 2022 at Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York. We look forward to meeting with all of our ACT members in-person again.

We believe that ACT members represent exceptional resources and skill sets that are relevant to our mission. With the support of our very capable members, we will continue to step up and do our very best.  


Patricia Hill Williams
A.C.T. President
