Hello all members, sponsors and friends of the CoreNet Global CT Westchester Chapter. I hope your summer is going well and everyone is happy and healthy despite all that is going around us here in the region and around the world. Please be safe.
I want to start out by sharing thanks and gratitude for the fun-filled CoreNet CT/WC annual golf tournament held on August 16th at the beautiful New Haven Country Club. It was such a spectacular day weather-wise, we had great attendance, strong levels of sponsorship and the $2,000 donation made to The Village (non-profit organization) thanks to the raffle tickets, cannon shoot and auction was more than we raised at the last tournament held two years ago. Special thanks again to Terri Frink and the entire Special Events committee which consisted of Rick Berry, Gene Goddard, Melissa Kalinowski, Jon Putnam, Rita Joy, Fury Sabato and Deb Seay. We have already placed our reservation for next year’s golf outing at New Haven Country Club once again as it is such a great venue and course!
Coming up in September we have an outstanding program scheduled for Sept 22nd. Please plan to join us for a panel discussion focused on Westchester County. Our panelists will share insights from their diverse portfolio of users that include bioscience, higher education and corporate. The industry experts will explore what makes Westchester County so unique in their reaction to pandemic challenges and will delve into their predictions of what these recent changes will lead to in the future.
We are also thrilled to see the traction around our chapter’s Young Leaders programs and engagement of a diverse group of young leaders/young professionals from across the region with our next program coming up on Sept 30th, an in-person event to be held at Elicit Brewing in Manchester. This is a joint-event between our CT/WC Young Leaders program and the Young Professionals Council associated with the Construction Institute. Please plan to attend as this event is open to ALL ages and it is important for us more “seasoned” professionals to be in attendance to meet and share experiences with these young professionals!
As a follow up to the powerful presentation and discussion on diversity, equity and inclusion led by expert Dr. Dwinita Mosby Tyler on August 3rd our CT/WC chapter, in collaboration with the CoreNet New England Chapter are working to schedule a follow on discussion with Dr. Dr. Mosby Tyler to be held in December so please watch for information on that important program.
There are additional programs underway for the remainder of this year including our year-end gala so please all stay connected and look for opportunities to get engaged personally – and to invite others from our industry or from outside of our industry to consider joining CoreNet Global and our CT/Westchester Chapter.
Lastly, and very important please all consider registering and attending the CoreNet Global – North America Summit to be held in Seattle, WA November 7-9. Great programs, learning events, networking sessions, the annual awards Gala and so much more. See information below on how to sign-up for the Summit. I hope to see you there!
Thanks again all for your continued support and involvement in our Chapter. Have a great September!
Be well. Stay Safe. Stay Connected.
