Our History

Founded in 1975, NYCRA continues to grow in membership and provision of membership benefits to our members. Benefits include offering continuing education with an Annual Educational Conference each Fall, other educational opportunities are offered, in addition to networking with others in the field of cancer registration. In 2020, with the outbreak of Covid-19, our annual conference moved to a hybrid opportunity for educational material presentation. NYCRA remains supportive of our members through the use of our website, Facebook page, eBlasts, and Board meetings throughout the year.

 

Our Board consists of President, President-Elect, Vice President, Vice President-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer and Immediate Past President as well as a number of Committees. We encourage our membership to serve on the Board. The benefits of serving on the Board, either as an elected officer or Committee chair/member, includes the opportunity for growth in a leadership role and the numerous advantages for networking connections. NYCRA Board members can also attend as well as represent our organization at NCRA Conferences.
