Be inspired by expert lecturers and panelists.
Observe fellow artists draw and paint New York heirloom apples in “The Big Apple Challenge” – bid for those works in a silent auction.
Enjoy the ever-popular Small Works Exhibition and Portfolio Sharing. Shop the Art Bazaar.
Try new materials and tools offered by an array of art supply vendors.
Revel in historic properties and countryside tours along the Hudson River.
Enjoy gatherings over breakfast, lunch, dinners, receptions, and informal interest groups.
It’s all yours.
The TSBA circle is thrilled to be hosting the first post-pandemic in-person conference in the beautiful state of New York! Come immerse yourself in Botanical Instruction for all levels and reconnect with friends from near and far in all that the Metropolitan area has to offer. This year’s conference will have opportunities to visit the world-renowned New York Botanical Garden in all its fall splendor as well as the gardens of Untermeyer with its spectacular views of the Hudson River and Wave Hill where the ASBA Annual exhibition will be held this year. Considering the time of year, what a great place to be to enjoy the Halloween favorites of Sleepy Hollow and the Great Pumpkin Blaze. The area lays claim to many historic sights such as Lyndhurst Mansion, Washington Irving's Sunnyside as well as Kykuit, the John D, Rockefeller Estate and Philipsburg Manor.

For our members unable to travel, we are creating an Online in October track – a scaled-back option, not as full as the last two years when “online” was THE conference – but still an opportunity to connect and be part of the conference experience. More details on that as plans develop.
Bonus for In-person attendees: registration will include access to all recorded content for three weeks following the conference.
You can plan on attending the conference with confidence that health and safety policies have been put in place and procedures will be rigorously followed to create the safest conference experience possible.
When contracting with the conference hotel – the Marriott Westchester – hotel policies and procedures were carefully considered. In December, the ASBA Executive Committee of the Board of Directors adopted the following policy as we began to recruit instructors:
ASBA will follow all local guidelines as well as CDC recommendations in place at the time of the October, 2022 conference. All conference attendees will be required to be vaccinated (in accordance with CDC guidelines) and to produce proof of vaccination.
