The Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC) is a member conference of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA). It consists of eight small colleges in New York state.[1] HVIAC's first championships were held in the 2004-05 season.[2] Andy DeStephano, Athletic Director of Berkeley College, was the president of the conference and served until 2019-20.[3] His successor has yet to be named. Similar to NCAA Division III rules, HVIAC membership is open to four-year higher education institutions that offer no athletic financial aid.[4]
