Mark your calendars and save the date: On August 31, AABANY will be hosting an End of Summer Happy Hour at Roam NYC on East 19th Street near Fifth Ave, from 6 pm to 9 pm. Join fellow AABANY members and friends to socialize, meet and mingle over food and drinks. Find out what’s on tap for the Fall Conference. Also learn more about staying connected with AABANY through its numerous channels of communication. More details at this link. We hope to see you there.
Last month we announced the launch of the AABANY Mentorship Program. We have had a strong response from mentees and we need more mentors to sign up, particularly in the following areas: Bankruptcy, Corporate, Commercial Litigation, International, Immigration, Intellectual Property and Real Estate. If you have not signed up yet, please do so today. Deadline is August 15. We hope you will take part in this important new initiative from AABANY. Thanks very much to those who have already signed up. We plan to introduce the mentors and mentees in person during the cocktail reception at the Fall Conference on September 17. If you have any questions, contact the Mentorship Program Coordinator, Julie Kwon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have been urging you all to “Get Connected @ AABANY” and now that you have begun to take up the call, we invite you to stay connected. AABANY provides many ways to do so, beyond just our website and weekly e-mails. We know that no one likes getting pelted by e-mails so we are offering other options that you can use to find out what’s going on or receive periodic short reminders about upcoming events.
Over the past few months, you may have noticed AABANY’s increasing presence on various social media fronts. If you are already on Facebook, please log on to AABANY’s Facebook page and “like” us. If you already have a Twitter account, follow @aabany. If you are on LinkedIn, connect with AABANY there and join AABANY’s LinkedIn group. You can also view videos from various events on AABANY’s YouTube Channel.
If you would prefer not to receive any e-mail or status updates from us, that is perfectly fine. Just know that you can always go directly to our Weekly Announcements on the website, which is updated every Monday, to get the latest news and events. You can also visit the AABANY Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts directly if you are following us through those channels.
AABANY also has a blog which currently contains much of the same content that you already see on the Weekly Announcements but over time we hope to include other content that you might find interesting. We are developing ways for you to offer your feedback to the blog posts so that you can share your thought and ideas with us.
AABANY is doing lots of different and exciting things and we don’t want you to miss a beat. The Communications Committee is charged with keeping our various communication channels open and active, and if you would like to be involved with those efforts, let our Communications Committee co-chairs Will Wang and Will Ng know by e-mailing them at email@example.com. If you have any questions or suggestions, get in touch with them at that address, too.
AABANY looks forward to staying connected with you.
