The next GANYC membership meeting will take place Wednesday, May 6 at 6 pm. The meeting will be conducted via the online meetings platform Zoom. The online meeting has a capacity of 500 registrants, and is open to the public. 


To participate in the online meeting, you must register here through our Wild Apricot system as you would for any other GANYC event. Once you register, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that will contain instructions for joining the online meeting on May 6.


Members of the GANYC Board of Directors will serve as moderators for the online meeting. President Emma Guest-Consales will be the primary moderator. 

We are working to finalize a line up of guest presenters as we did for the April membership meeting. We have one speaker confirmed, and are working to confirm other industry-appropriate presenters. Please stay tuned for updates.

  • Dan Pitzer, Breaking the Chain Counseling. He will discuss dealing with the street and anxiety in the wake of COVID-19 and its impact on the tour industry. 
  • Rafael Espinal. President/Execuitve Director, Freelancers Union. He will discuss how COVID-19 is affecting freelancers, the types of support and aid available to freelancers, and what freelance work will look like after the pandemic. 

The presenters will be asked questions by the GANYC moderators and will accept questions from the audience. To submit a question in advance, please e-mail, and make sure to specify to which presenter your question is addressed. In addition, you will be able to submit questions in real time during the meeting via the chatroom function on the Zoom app. Please note that due to time constraints, we will not be able to ask every question that is submitted; the moderators will focus on questions most appropriate to the discussion, as well as questions that seem to be the most asked. 

Other Agenda Items:

  • Committee chairs will deliver committee reports if they request to address the meeting. 
  • Michael Morgenthal will update on the #TourYourOwnCity initiative.  
  • We do have an Industry Partner vote. Moxi has applied to become a GANYC Industry Partner. An online ballot will be sent to all Full Voting Members via Wild Apricot on May 6 during the meeting. Official notice of the application will be sent out on April 24. 

We hope everyone is staying safe, sanitary and sane during the COVID-19 pandemic, and look forward to connecting virtually on May 6. 

GANYC is a 501(c)6 non-profit organization. 115 Broadway, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10006
