New York Athletic Club

The New York Athletic Club (NYAC) is the proud home of AVBCC’s annual Educational Summit & Program. Conveniently located in mid-town Manhattan, the NYAC is a 24-story, historically rich oasis.

Founded in 1868, the NYAC offers superb dining and meeting facilities as well as panoramic views of Central Park. It is within a 15-minute walk of Times Square, the Theater District, Fifth Avenue, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. When not taking part in sessions, AVBCC attendees can stroll through the NYAC’s many displays detailing its contributions to athletics—including Olympic athletes and the first US championships in boxing, swimming, wrestling, and track and field—as well as its ongoing commitment to the pursuit of sporting excellence.
