2019 Escape Conference

This past year’s conference was held at the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Albany, NY on August 8th, 2018 from 8:30am to 3:30pm.

The ESCAPE Conference allows career services professionals an opportunity to offer sessions on best practices, new trends, emerging issues, and research findings; and is an excellent opportunity to network with other professionals throughout New York State.

This year's conference theme was  "Career Services in the 21st Century" with concentrations in career counseling, and employer and alumni relations. This conference will have a mixture of concurrent sessions, speed sessions, round table discussions, and a panel on the NACE Career Readiness Competencies.

The annual conference is open to all higher education professionals within the career field in New York State.  Information about next year's conference will be available in Spring 2019.  If you have any questions, please email
