Macy’s & LDACNY Team Up!

Posted by:

Today was Macy’s 10th annual Shop for a Cause event! What a fabulous day, and a great event Macy’s does each year, working with non-profits across the nation!

The best part? LDACNY got to keep 100% of the proceeds. Meaning ...

It’s Still Chaos…But We’re Here!

Posted by:

While moving is never easy, and we’ll still be unpacking boxes and deciding where the coat rack looks best for a month (I promise, if you visit in September then again in November, it’ll be in two different places!) we are finally moved in!
Everyone’s files are in their offices (there was an unfortunate incident where a computer was left behind in the old office, and another where two key files were buried in a storage closet under 40 boxes ...

Jumping off the walls doesn’t begin to describe the fun Learning Without Borders

the summer. ...

An Intern’s Life

Posted by:

Becoming an intern is an opportunity worth taking advantage of. It helps to prepare
you for the real world and offers many new skills to learn. As an intern of

how to attend business meetings, and how to use new marketing tools that I
am able to apply to other things in my life. I have also learned that just because
something may not seem ...

A new home sweet home!

Posted by:

Not only are we beyond thrilled to be redesigning our website, we’re excited to finally be moving into our new home in only 2 weeks! It’s just down the road in the Village of East Syracuse, but we’ll be increasing our size by almost 1,000 square feet…that means more room for client workshops, conference rooms and social events.

We’ll have a bus stop right across the street, and one thing the staff loves about the new property is it ...
