Notes from January 8 NYC Chapter Meeting

Dave Aiello wrote, "Mike Torre '91 sent me an email summarizing a meeting that the New York City Chapter of the RAA held on Tuesday, January 8. The New York City Chapter has done a lot to increase new volunteer involvement in their chapter event planning process, and they have always welcomed involvement of RCNJ members as organizers or participants in their events. So, I think it's important that the minutes of their meeting receive the broadest attention possible."
