Buffalo,   NY -  Michael Shilale Architects, LLP (MSA) exhibited their work at the statewide convention for New York State School Board Association (NYSSBA) members in Buffalo, NY last week.   


MSA was also proud to present, with the North Rockland Central School District,  a program on 'Creative Funding for Capital Projects.'   If you missed the presentation, you can view the slides by clicking here.


This year's winner of the $250 Library Grant goes to Mrs. Kate El Gheur, a Trustee with the Greenwood Lake Union Free School District.

Over 200 school board members and staff from districts throughout the state stopped by to chat with us and participate in our drawing. 


We discussed how our clients have successfully implemented the following strategies.

  • Capital improvements, such as roof replacements, boiler upgrades, and lighting retrofits at no cost to your taxpayers!

  • Replaced antiquated electrical service and have it pay for itself.

  • Solar panels, without the installation and maintenance costs!

The NYSSBA conference is geared to inform and educate school board members, and MSA is proud to support this effort and the clients we serve.  It was also an opportunity for us to meet school board members from throughout New York State.
