Build Networks

Our members have networks they can rely on in times of need. As members and school owners we work with each other in times of question and uncertainty within our schools.

Stay Informed

Regulations and rules change sometimes faster than it is possible to disseminate what the meaning behind a regulation was in the first place. The NYSBSA and its members and Government relations people help the school understand the effects these changes will have on our students and the way we conduct business in New York State.

Education for Educators

The NYSBSA sponsors continuing education for instructors on a quarterly basis as well as an annual instructors' seminar held in NYC every year, with speakers that not only inform but motivate our instructional teams. Please see the Teacher Training page for more information.

Make Your Voice Heard

We recommend, institute and maintain, in fullest possible cooperation with the State Education Department and other segments of the industry, such methods of operational standards in the beauty schools that will result in a high degree of proficiency in their students. We exchange technical and commercial information with all key elements in the industry. NYSBSA also has a lobby firm and member representatives in key positions to represent schools, educators and students in all state and national legislative issues.
