Metro New York Chapter launches with networking event

By Steve Seepersaud

Metro New York Chapter LaunchBinghamton University has its highest concentration of alumni in the New York City area - a network of nearly 50,000 - and a core group of volunteers wants the region to be home to an extremely vibrant alumni chapter. The Alumni Association officially launched its Metro New York Chapter with a networking mixer on June 20. (Pictured: Lisa Fischoff '10, Megan Caruso '07 and Dan Cherico '08)

About 250 alumni enjoyed an evening of cocktails and conversation at Harding's in midtown Manhattan. The event was the most well-attended Binghamton alumni function ever held in the metro area, and sets the stage for what will be a busy agenda of events and programs. The chapter committee is planning a July 20 picnic at Prospect Park in Brooklyn and a Mets baseball game and mixer for September.

An award-winning alumni chapter in New York City helped to keep Binghamton alumni connected in the 1980s. Earlier this year, Dan Cherico '08, Rory Clark '05 and Geraldine Toussaint '08 stepped forward to co-lead the new chapter and they are working closely with a 20-member steering committee to plan events and programs.

Chapter activities will offer alumni numerous opportunities to have fun and expand their professional circles. Networking will take place through generalized mixers as well as gatherings that bring together professionals in particular industries.

"As a real estate broker and consultant, where my business is connecting people, it was awesome to see alumni re-connecting with each other in a way that could lead to real social and business relationships," Clark said. "We're very excited about putting together business panels and networking events that are industry-specific to put Binghamton alumni in the same room as their professional colleagues. We want these programs to be educational and career-advancing."

The strong turnout at the Harding's event - a mix of newcomers and alumni who are active volunteers - has created optimism about the chapter's chances for success.

Metro New York Chapter Launch"It was really nostalgic to see so many alumni in one room!" said Toussaint, pictured with Adam Amit '10. "The chapter is busy at work thinking about social and educational events to put on in the Metro New York Area for both the summer and fall. Our goal is to create the opportunity to have alumni reconnect with each other while also getting them engaged with the University through different capacities."
