The New York City Alumni Club and our special guests, University President, Patrick Harker, and Provost Domenico Grasso invite you to join UD alumni, friends and current UD students at the Third Annual “Evening of Conversations & Connections with New York City Alumni.” As we showcase talented UD alumni we mix business and pleasure at this event hosted by Vornado Realty Trust, featuring UD alumni speaking to UD alumni, in a panel format with Q&A.

The evening’s theme “Social Media – Its Impact and Future” will feature an interactive discussion focused on the ever increasing importance of social media in all aspects of our lives whether it is at home or work. A panel of alumni from the areas of technology, education, communications, and other industries will discuss social media - its past, present and future, as well as “the good, the bad, and the ugly of social media. We will discuss its use and abuse, across all industries, governments and cultures.

Confirmed panelists include: Scott A. Barber AS’96 (Manager, User Operations, Facebook), Meredith L. Chapman AS’07 (Director, Digital Communications and Faculty, UD), David L. Margalit BE’97 (Former Senior Advisor, Office of NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg), Joseph M. Perello ’90 (Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Catch New York) and Julia C. Willmott ’07 (Manager, Content and Programming, Nickelodeon Digital). Our Moderator, Anne Giacoma Barretta AS’83, (Adjunct Professor of Communications at William Paterson University of New Jersey and member, Vice President, of the UDAA Board of Directors) will lead the panel program. A question and answer session will follow the panel discussion. You can submit your questions through Twitter using #UDCandC.

This series highlights Blue Hen industry leaders, living and working in and around New York City and the rest of the U.S., where they are today, and how UD played a role in their rise. Connect with friends, make new contacts and learn from successful Blue Hens why they have such a passion for UD.

Invited guests include alumni, friends and current UD students. Before and after the program there will be an opportunity to network and enjoy cocktails and hor’s d’ourves while participating in Conversations & Connections with fellow Blue Hens.

NEW THIS YEAR: No after party down the street. We get to stay put and mingle with other Blue Hens after the fabulous panel discussion! Once the main party has slowed down, Chinese take-out arrives! For a small additional fee you can enjoy more cocktails and food at the After-Party with Chinese take-out! Don’t let the Conversations & Connections end just yet. (see registration form for details)

The hashtag for this event will be #UDCandC.

Special thanks to the UD Alumni Association for providing support for this event, Vornado Realty Trust for their lovely venue, and to the UD New York City Alumni Club Volunteers for their extensive planning.
