Special Message to NYSADA Members Concerning the Corona Virus

On March 22, 2020, Governor Cuomo issued Executive Order 202.8, which mandates the closure of all non-essential businesses throughout the State, in an effort to curtail the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Accordingly, NYSADA headquarters along with SNYADS Services, The Group Insurance Trust, and Safety Group 430 Operations will be operating remotely or with a skeleton crew until further notice.

NYSADA Headquarters Details

Most of the NYSADA staff will continue to be accessible to serve our dealer members and will be working remotely during regular business hours. They will be checking voicemail, email and phone calls made to the office which will be forwarded to their mobile phones. Please visit NYSADA’s Coronavirus Resource Page to access to help navigate your business through this pandemic.

For the duration of our mandated-closure, management staff at NYSADA will be responding to telephone and email inquiries. Accordingly, feel free to call NYSADA 518-463-1148 and leave a voicemail message. Your call will be returned.
