Summer 2015 Thank You

July 20, 2015


Summer marks the end of the ODNNY programming year, and we'd like to express our gratitude to all the individuals who contributed their time and talents towards keeping our organization strong. Together we planned and organized ten learning and networking events over the last year.

Our programming committee, led by Board Members Tesmerelna Atsbeha and Robert Taylor, included Ariel Bernstein, Cristina Chua, Melissa Lomax, Alex Matthew, David Mazer, Jessica Powers and Evgeniya Vodolazova. This committee worked diligently to conceive, develop, and professionally deliver our wonderful programs.

Anastasia Bamberg headed up our marketing efforts with help from Hyder Alikhan. In addition to handling all of our email announcements, our marketing committee has increased communication via social media, including live-tweeting from our events.

Membership Chair, Sarah Lawrence, and Laura Espriu cultivated our membership and mentoring program efforts. They model the inclusiveness and energy of our organization.

Cathy Joseph served as our secretary keeping us organized, managed our first ODNNY Salon, and helped out with a little of everything. Amy Pasquale managed our finances as Treasurer.

We'd like to thank our sponsors iCoach and Excellent Ones Consulting. We are also appreciative of both the Milano School of International Affairs and ZenithOptimedia for generously donating their space to hold our programs.

Finally, we'd like to thank our members and others in the OD community who attended our events, provided thoughtful dialogue, completed our surveys, contributed to our first-ever Salon, and otherwise supported our mission of making organizations work.

Wishing everyone a relaxed and peaceful summer and looking forward to another year together!

Best regards,

Suzanne Young

ODNNY President
