Thank you for your interest in the video library of recordings of keynote speeches and presentations made at the New York State Council for the Social Studies 84th Annual Convention, "Engage-Empower-Inspire.” The 2022 NYSCSS Convention took place from March 10-12, 2022 at the Crowne Plaza Albany-The Desmond Hotel. Access to the virtual library will be granted from payment date to May 11, 2022. Access to the video library will end at midnight on May 11, 2022.
Based on our analytics, we will generate CTLE certificates for viewing recordings by June 30, 2022.
Membership is required to access the virtual library. Non-member registration includes NYSCSS membership for one (1) calendar year. Please click here to learn about our various membership options.
Please be patient after clicking "Next" on each page of the registration form. New pages may take time to load. Do not hit "refresh" or your information may be lost.
Pay by Credit Card:
All credit card payments can be made online through our PayPal link using a bank account transaction, debit card, or credit card. When the transaction is completed, you will receive an email invoice confirming payment. You do NOT need to have a PayPal account to use this option. Please scroll all the way down on the PayPal site to input your chosen credit or debit card.
If your payment is made by a school or organization with a credit or debit card, each individual's payment must be entered separately. This will need to be done by the person purchasing access to the video library as they will use their own account settings and password. If you elect or are required to have district personnel access your personal NYSCSS account (for current NYSCSS members only), we suggest you change your member password before and after such payment.
Purchase orders: A purchase order is a document that encumbers funds from your school district's specified budget lines. It is a promise to pay. If you are planning to pay with a purchase order at the time of purchase, please select “purchase order.” You will receive an auto-generated invoice that is your invoice to submit to your district. You (not NYSCSS) need to submit this invoice with your registration information to your district. If you do not submit the invoice with your registration, you delay the processing of the registration and payment.
If your school or organization is paying by check or purchase order, please make certain that the names of all registrants being paid for are typed on all documents accompanying the mailed check or purchase order. A school or organization's contact person (with phone and email address) should be identified on the purchase order.
District staff - Please note that you must check the NYSCSS address in your district management system (especially WinCap) and make sure all OLD NYSCSS mailing addresses are removed from WinCap.
Attention New York City Department of Education Teachers: Please note that due to past payment issues with the DOE with purchase orders you will need to contact Tim Potts (Treasurer) first before registering.
