Staying Connected with AABANY

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 communication-chairs@aabany.org.  If you have any questions or suggestions, get in touch with them at that address, too.

AABANY looks forward to staying connected with you.

Happy Hour at Angels & Kings with a4

This year, AABANY has been working together with the Asian American Arts Alliance (a4) on a number of programs, and with the arrival of summer, we thought it would be good to bring together Asian American artists and Asian American lawyers.  It took place last Thursday at Angels & Kings, a bar in the East Village.  Approximately 50 to 60 people came out to socialize, drink and make new connections.

The bar had a stage by the entrance, and a4 got two performers to entertain the crowd.  The first was Rick Ebihara, a member of the Slant Performance group, who played guitar and sang.  The next was Rich Kameda, a professional magician.  Rich also walked around during the happy hour and did close-up magic for anyone who was interested.  In one of the illusions, Rich changed a bunch of singles into hundreds.  That one got a lot of lawyers’ attention. 

It was a wonderful and enjoyable evening, and it was good to hang out with another part of the APA community – not that there’s anything wrong with hanging out with APA lawyers; it’s just that a change of pace from time to time is welcome.

Thanks to Andrea Louie, Executive Director of a4, and her staff who helped put the event together with Liza Sohn, Student Outreach Committee co-chair.  We had so much fun, we might do it again soon.  Stay tuned.  Here are some photos from the evening.
