of interest to local alumni to bring Cornellians together and educate our
community about the University and its capabilities.If you have ideas, or are willing to lend a
hand, we would love to get you involved. Club members are invited to attend monthly
meetings of the Board of Governors, posted to our web site at www.alumni.cornell.edu/orgs/clubs/ccnnj/.During the Club year, we will e-mail
information on events to Club members.
A Message From the Co-Presidents:
Dear Northern New Jersey Alumni, Students,
and Parents of Students of Cornell University,
Welcome to a new year with the Cornell Club of Northern New Jersey. The
intent of our Club is to maintain ties between Northern New Jersey alumni,
parents, and friends and Cornell University through volunteer service, faculty speaker
events, networking, scholarship funding, and a wide variety of social
activities for all ages and demographics.
We have an exciting year planned including
new events at the Newark Museum, Pinot’s Palette in Montclair, and a paintball
excursion, as well as old favorites such as Zinck’s night, the Cornell hockey
game at Madison Square Garden, faculty speakers, and the return of the monthly
business networking series: Martinis & Mingling. This year we’re adding networking
events in Sussex county and Hoboken. A listing of programs we have planned can
be found on the “Community” page at the Club’s website.
The big event this year is Cornell’s
Sesquicentennial. Cornell is celebrating its 150th birthday and we
are planning a Big Red Charter Day celebration over
the weekend of April 25, 2015. Are
you in? Mark your calendars now!
We continue to remain dues-free, so all
alumni in northern New Jersey are Club members. In order for us to reach such a
large membership base, all Club communications are now electronic. Ongoing
e-mails of activities and events are sent out by the Club as well as by the
regional alumni office in New York, so make sure that Cornell has your most up-to-date
e-mail address. In addition, information may be found on the Club's website
We welcome new volunteers to propose and
assist with events or serve as Club officers. In fact, we
are actively looking for members in Bergen, Sussex, and Warren counties to join
the board. If you would like to volunteer, please contact any of the officers
or members of the Board of Governors for more information.
