PROTECTING YOUR LICENSE AND YOUR BUSINESS

Legislative alerts from the NYS Association of Salon and Spa Professionals will keep members up to date on all matters concerning the industry at the capital.  Your personal involvement is encouraged with communications to lawmakers to better inform these decision makers of the potential impact proposed laws may have on our industry.

Legislative Director, Art Wilcox, brings over 30 years experience navigating through NYS regulations and policies, specifically with NYS Department's of Labor, Health, State, Budget and Workers' Compensation Board among others. NYSASSP has focused on advocacy with a unified voice from our membership to advance our professions for the benefit of all practicing their craft within the industry.  We call on you to be attentive to legislative alerts when issued and respond accordingly. Let us know what your issues and challenges are. Together our voices are strong and clear.
