The Student Advisory Council (SAC) is the group that powers Student Connection and provides programming to reach out to HIM students across the state. The SAC consists of students from each university and college with an HIM program and campus within New York. The SAC is a new venture for NYHIMA and hopes to harness the future of HIM professionals by serving as a connection between the students and the field.
