Notice: as of January 2016, there is no longer a New York Chapter of APLD.

We have made several valiant efforts to make the NY chapter a vibrant organization. There was neither enough interest, nor volunteers willing to do the work necessary to make the chapter viable. 

There are a multitude of theories and explanations, but the bottom line is that it has been a losing battle to keep this chapter relevant and alive.

With the urging of the NY chapter's board of directors, the national APLD organization has voted to close the NY state chapter. 

Please address any questions to the APLD National organization at

We extend grateful thanks to the members who have helped with the NY chapter over the years, and to our sponsor companies.

Arnie Friedman, President
Board Of Directors APLD-NY
