NYIPLA is pleased to announce that the 95th Annual Dinner in Honor of the Federal Judiciary will be held at the New York Hilton Midtown on Friday, March 31, 2017. The Waldorf Astoria New York Hotel will be temporarily closing for renovations next year. 

New York Hilton Midtown provides the opportunity to consolidate most of the dinner tables into one Grand Ballroom on the 3rd floor to provide Honored Guests, NYIPLA members and their guests with a view of the dais and a more collegial atmosphere. NYIPLA also reserved the Trianon Ballroom on the 3rd floor for members and their guests who prefer a satellite room. The Grand Ballroom and Trianon Ballroom can only accommodate two types of tables: either 6 or 10 seats per table.
