AMCC Commissioner Donna Ledwin, a Nardin High School graduate, will present the President’s Cup and oversee the proceedings.
Athletic Directors will meet to discuss plans for the future and Sister Denise A. Roche, D’Youville president, will host a dinner for the presidents of member colleges on Monday evening, May 19 at the Buffalo Club.
