Take a glimpse at what we accomplished (huge thanks to our members) and get a sneak peek at all the excitement coming up in 2014!
Dear Net Impact NY Members & Supporters,
2013 was a great year for the Net Impact New York City Professional Chapter. Our initiatives were recognized last summer when we earned Gold Chapter Status, an honor achieved by only 10 professional chapters last year.
We earned it thanks to great events with social enterprises like A Better Future and Susty Party and conversations with intrapreneurial change-makers at corporations like JP Morgan. We earned it too for fostering our Net Impact community with happy hours, speed networking, sustainable dinner parties, and the largest membership contingent of professional members at the National Conference in October. But perhaps most of all, we earned Gold status because of the effort and dedication of our board and our members, all of you. In 2013 more than 75 members took on consulting projects and board positions with over 21 non-profits in New York to deliver truly impactful work.
Last month, our board gathered to craft a new mission and set annual goals for 2014. We are excited to share with you our new mission statement, which will focus our board’s efforts on continuing to build a sense of community among our membership.
