    What you need to know about Annual Conference 2018:  Getting There

    February 13, 2018 / By Vicki Swanson

    This year, the Annual Conference is at the SRC Arena at Onondaga Community College (OCC). GPS Address is: 4585 West Seneca Turnpike, Syracuse NY 13215; comprehensive directions from multiple locations can be found here:

    Buses:  There will be shuttle buses from the Crowne Plaza and Genesee Grande. Youth and others staying at the Parkview will have access to the shuttle leaving from the Crowne Plaza. 

    PLEASE NOTE:  These buses will only run morning and evening, not continuously throughout the day. Click here for the hotel shuttle schedule, keeping in mind that the “commute” will take more time than in previous years. 

    Driving to OCC:  Please reference the address above. There are several hotels in our block which have easy access to highways if you plan to drive to OCC and not utilize the shuttle service. Those hotels would be the Holiday Inn Express, Maplewood, and Comfort Inn & Suites-Airport. We recommend that you put the address of your hotel into Google Maps, or other mapping system, and get directions and estimated time needed to OCC for planning purposes. 

    Parking at OCC:  Pro:  Parking is plentiful and free; Con: Parking lots are huge. OCC will provide shuttles for getting from parking spots to the Arena.  More information will be provided at a later date. Click here to view the parking lot shuttle schedule.
