NYSOGA Summer u0026 Winter Rendezvous


The 2020 Winter Rendezvous Committee invites you to join fellow New York State Outdoor Guides Association (NYSOGA) guides, their families, prospective guides, and guests to their annual event.

Winter Rendezvous is a formal gathering of licensed guides from across the state held each year in March. Rendezvous offers an opportunity to meet other members, interact and network with other guides, observe how the Association is working on behalf of its members, and pick up First Aid, CPR and Water Safety trainings for prospective new guides as well as the venue for re-certifications for current guides that may be needed to keep the guide’s license valid…. and so much more! Winter Rendezvous is also a site used by DEC for it’s spring testing of new guide candidates.

This event is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring guides to acquire all the certifications necessary for obtaining a New York State guide license in a 3 day period. The annual meeting for NYSOGA members and the election of new officers to the board of directors is held on Saturday afternoon, as well as regional meetings and appointing of regional directors. These meetings are followed by the annual banquet, awards presentations and an evening of socializing and fun. All Rendezvous attendees and their guests are welcomed to the banquet and evening activities. As with summer rendezvous there is also time for enjoying the company of fellow guides renewing friendships and making new friends. Come join the fun!

Attendees can take advantage of opportunities for certification trainings, education, sitting for the guide exam administered by NYSDEC, networking and socializing… and so much more!
