What Members Are Saying: "I wanted to let you know that our organization has signed up with the Hartford plan available through AXA as a member of NYCON. This was exactly what our organization was looking for – a plan that our staff could use, but would not be an expense to the organization. Not having to be concerned with Form 5500 and other obligations is what other small organizations are looking for." – Diana Bennett, Executive Director, Scotia-Glenville Children´s Museum
