AABANY Hosts Weekly Membership Mixer on February 19, 2021

On February 19, 2021, the Membership Committee hosted their weekly virtual Membership Mixer, with 19 participants in attendance. AABANY met members through Remo.

The Membership Committee previously hosted Monthly Mixers at bars, ballparks, stadiums, operas, etc, but due to COVID, we have moved online to offer members a weekly outlet to share their feelings, see old friends, and make new connections. Mixers start at 6:30pm on Friday and the main event ends at 7:30pm but many often stay on after 7:30pm for smaller breakout groups.

Membership Committee will continue to host weekly virtual mixers until it is safe to gather together again in person. 

Please join us this week in the Remo room, for smaller group breakouts on February 26, 2021. To register for this week’s mixer, please sign up online by February 25 at https://www.aabany.org/events/event_details.asp?legacy=1&id=1468896.

AABANY Hosts 2020 Holiday Party on Remo

On Thursday, December 10th, AABANY held its annual Holiday Party on Remo. The Remo event room was decorated with a holiday theme, including holiday character-themed table names and a crackling fireplace in the background. More than 30 AABANY members signed on to Remo to celebrate the holiday season. 

To kick off the celebration, President Sapna Palla thanked everyone for coming and wished everyone happy holidays. She also took the opportunity to encourage everyone to join AABANY’s Virtual Gala being held on February 24, 2021 to recognize our Virtual Gala award honorees, Frank H. Wu, President of Queens College, City University of New York, and Sneha Desai, Deputy General Counsel of BASF.

Throughout the night, guests were able to move from table to table and talk with different people. Many guests enjoyed the optional Holiday Wine & Cheese Gift Basket or Hot Chocolate & Treats Gift Basket they ordered through AABANY. 

Thanks to everyone who took the time to join us virtually to celebrate the season. AABANY wishes everyone happy holidays!

Membership Committee Hosts Weekly Mixer on October 2

On October 2, 2020, the Membership Committee hosted their weekly virtual Membership Mixer, with 13 participants in attendance. Recently, Membership Committee has used Remo, a new dinner party style platform to hold the mixer. Attendees have the flexibility to visit multiple tables and mix and mingle with guests in a six person group. The icebreaker question this week asked participants if they are looking forward to indoor dining at 25% capacity.

The Membership Committee previously hosted Monthly Mixers at bars, ballparks, stadiums, operas, etc, but due to COVID, we have moved online to offer members a weekly outlet to share their feelings, see old friends, and make new connections. Mixers start at 6:30pm on Friday and the main event ends at 7:30pm but people often stay on after 7:30pm for smaller breakout groups. Mixers are not recorded, and are LIVE, so don’t miss out.

Membership Committee plans to continue hosting weekly virtual mixers until it is safe to gather together again in person. 

We are giving away door prizes in some weeks. In order to win, you must be a member and must RSVP on the aabany.org calendar entry to get a raffle number. Non-members can join the mixer but won’t be eligible to win a prize.
