Happy Christmas from IIBN New York
IIBN New York finished 2011 on a high as members from New York, London & Dublin enjoyed cocktails on the 51st Floor of the landmark Bank of America Tower overlooking Bryant Park and downtown Manhattan.
One of New York’s most sought after event venues, IIBN was generously hosted by The Gaffey Mellody Group. In the seasonal spirit, our event sponsor also had a random draw for two lucky winners, who now will have one more gift under the tree this year!
Appropriately, the winners were an IIBN London member and new New York member, highlighting the international strength of the network and the swathe of recent additions to the member base in New York. New members in 2011 out-number past members by a factor of 2:1 which bodes well for 2012, with additions to the board and an exciting event roster in the planning process.
A special message of thanks goes out to Executive Director Fionuala Pender, who has been vital to IIBN NY reaching this juncture, wishing her the best on the arrival of her new baby in the coming weeks. A special message of welcome goes out to Sinead Crowley who has hit the ground running, filling Fionuala’s shoes during her maternity leave of absence.
We would like to wish our members and advocates best wishes for the holiday season and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
