GALA NY held our annual Winter Happy Hour on February 17th. We had an intimate group of people from various class years and schools attend and it served as a great way to cure everybody’s post Valentine’s Day winter blues.
In speaking to future GALA NY events, we are partnering with CEBA NY, AWE NY and the NY Alumni Chapter’s Tolerance group to plan our first diversity panel discussion. We are looking to hold the discussion at the beginning of May and will be providing more information regarding speakers and location closer to the event. Additionally, GALA NY will be hosting our signature PRIDE Week happy hour the Tuesday or Wednesday before NYC Pride.
GALA NY is still looking to increase its membership. In addition to working with the Office of Alumni Relations, should you know of anybody that you think would be interested in attending GALA NY events, please let me know. The success of our events depends upon the involvement and interest of our community.
As always, this quarter’s success would not be possible without the help of my board. To each of you, thank you for your hard work and dedication. As always, should you have any questions or suggestions for future GALA NY events, please let me know. I look forward to seeing everybody at future GALA NY events.
