Second in a Series
The Syracuse University School of Management Alumni Association of New York City takes the art of networking to the extreme. As a member of the New York City Business Club Group, it participates in a variety of joint activities with other N.Y.C.-based alumni clubs from Columbia, NYU Harvard, Yale, NorthWestern, Chicago, UCLA, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. This unique alliance gives SU management alumni access to a broad network of business contacts from coast to coast.
The SU Management Alumni Association was created in the late 1980s to give School of Management graduates living in metropolitan New York a way to reconnect with former classmates, strengthen their professional network, and keep up on the latest business trends. “Our group is less social and more business-issues oriented,” says Bob Pearlman ’64, association president. “In the past year we offered seminars on Internet investing, venture capital, and new rules of job hunting on the Internet.” The group also co-sponsored a career development seminar series with the Wharton School and helped the School of Management host a fall get-together with recent grads working in the New York City area.
The group’s home base is SU’s historic Lubin House in New York City. Lubin House staff help Pearlman and officers Leon Sickles ’76, Scott Bloom ’88, Stan Dlugozima ’92, Mark Feldstein ’91, and Mike Ellison ’94 plan and organize events. “We welcome new program ideas from our members,” says Pearlman. “We encourage them to stay in touch with each other through our electronic listserv. Quite often these online discussions spark lively debate about the business news of the day.”
If you are a School of Management graduate looking to reconnect with old friends and eager to make new business contacts in metropolitan New York and beyond, call Pearlman at 212-476-5855, e-mail email@example.com visit the School of Management Alumni Association web site at www.som.syr.edu/alumni/alumassc.htm.

Mitzi Grossman served on the Syracuse University Alumni Association’s Board of Directors from 1979 to 1983 and is a former president of the Central New York Alumni Club. The couple also were active on the national committee for the Schine Student Center campaign. The Grossmans were honored with Outstanding Alumni awards in 1979.
