In addition to having social events for NYC alums and friends, an important way to connect with one another is through professional networking. This might include opportunities for those already working, people transitioning and for students just entering the work force.
Linkedin – GALA has a Linkedin group for professional networking purposes. This is a closed group, which requires approval by the group admin or an invitation from an existing member. Also, visibility can be set to “private” so other Linkedin users will not see your membership in the group. Join the group and reach out to members: GALA LinkedIn Group.
Volunteer Opportunity – The club is currently seeking a professional networking committee lead. If interested, contact club co-chair Edward Augustine, Esq. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
