Welcome MIT Alumni

From the Club President

July 1, 2014

As I start my term as President of the MIT Club of New York, I want to thank Scott Morrison for his leadership, hard work and diligence. Scott will remain close to the club providing continual guidance to our officers and giving his support towards the many programs and club events.

I am excited to serve as your Club President for the 2014-15 membership year. This year’s theme is engagement. We the officers want to engage you, the members and alumni through multiple ways. We want to connect virtually, at club events and through service to our communities and MIT. Our engagement reminds us of our Club’s mission; that is to promote greater awareness and social connections, to encourage professional development, to educate and provide activities and to create links between alumni throughout the New York City metropolitan area.

One of the crucial ways you can engage with the Club is through its membership. Membership not only supports the club operations, but it allows us to provide special discounts as well as members-only events throughout the season. Moreover, a strong membership demonstrates to MIT and the global community our strength, depth and diversity. Most importantly, it creates lastly connections – connections to other alumni and members in New York, connections to the Club and connections to MIT.  Whether you are looking to either join for the first time or renew, now is a great time to become a member of the MIT Club of New York.  Your membership is truly valuable to us.

I look forward to serving you and to participating in greater levels of engagement in the 2014-15 membership season.

Sincerely,

Michael G. Johnson  

President, MIT Club of New York
