Will you be in New York City on Friday 6 March?
As we settle in to the new year, the New York City Alumni Network is excited to begin a new chapter of connecting with ANU alumni in New York and New Jersey.
We'll be hosting a range of events in 2020, and will kick things off with a casual get-together in early March, over drinks and nibbles at the Fraunces Tavern.
A Letter to our NYC Alumni and Friends from Network Board Member Diana Malcomess
Welcome back and Happy New Year!
I hope everyone was able to spend some quality time with family and friends over the Christmas period! Since living in NY I have always made an effort to go back to Australia to spend it with family and friends, but this year I chose to stay here. It was a strange feeling, but having a real Christmas tree made it a little easier!
We are excited to enter 2020 with all of you as we enter this next chapter of the ANU Alumni community in NYC. As we kick-off 2020 we have a few items to share with you.
Kick-off Event at Fraunces Tavern on Friday 6th March
