NAMIC-NYC’s “New Year Kick Off” Event

Tonight, my first event was the NAMIC-New York’s annual “New Year Kick Off”.  A professional mixer for people of color in the communication field.  It was held in the ABC Studio building (yes the television station 🙂 ), located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan.  Around 65 – 85 members and non-members attendant this event, sponsored by ABC Network Sales and ESPN.

NAMIC, National Association for Multi-Ethnicity In Communication, it a wonderful HUGE organization.  It has 16 chapters and more than 2,600 members through out the United States.  The New York chapter has about 650 members, with five committees that members can participate in.  There is a membership fee, which depends on your career level, i.e. if you’re an entry-level employee it is less expensive versus it you’re an executive-level employee.  For more information click here.
I particularly found this event to be useful because of the large attendance, the connections that were made and the abundance of resources available. If you are interested or have experience in the communication/marketing field, this is an organization that you should defintely look into. I met some wonderful people and I look forward to attending their next event!!!
