The Long Island Chapter meets multiple times throughout the year; either on the first Thursday of the month or a Saturday morning.  If a meeting is cancelled, an email will go out to our members.

Thursday meetings are held at the Town of Babylon Annex Building at 281 Phelps Lane in North Babylon.

Saturday meetings are help at the Empress Diner at 2940 Hempstead Turnpike in East Meadow.

We also hold special events and workshops throughout the year.

Diner Meeting Prices​:

Diner Meetings cost $10 for members and $15 for non-members.  This price is for breakfast so you are more than welcome to attend and forego breakfast as well.

Speakers Wanted:

We are currently looking for speakers for our regular meetings.  If you or someone you know would like to present a topic at a LINYMHCA meeting, please reach out to Bob Ranieri to coordinate and plan.  He can be reached at
