Women's Committee and In-House Counsel Committee Hold Successful Golf Networking Event

On Wednesday June 5, 2013, the AABANY Women’s Committee and In-House Counsel Committee presented, “Tee Off Your Business Network,” at Drive495, NYC’s premier indoor golf fitness club located in the heart of SoHo. A unique networking event designed for women attorneys interested in the professional and social benefits of golf, “Tee Off” drew attorneys from law firms, solo practices, and companies, including AIG Inc., The Chinese-American Planning Council Inc., Empire State Development, Fortress Investment Group, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, MetLife, New York Liquidation Bureau, The Rockefeller Group, Time Inc., and Verizon Wireless. Attendees also included representatives from Elisa Dreier Reporting Corp., who helped sponsor the event.


The majority of attendees were new to golf and therefore eager to learn about the game and to practice on Drive495’s state-of-the-art driving range simulators. The evening’shttp://aabany.org/admincommonsub_addedit.cfm?PageMode=Edit&SubpageId=350 program began with an introductory lesson from top-ranked PGA teaching professionals who covered golf terminology and equipment, swing fundamentals and technique, course etiquette, and course management. Following this, beginning players separated into smaller groups for hands-on practice, while experienced players received personalized tips on how to improve their game. Attendees also competed for a chance to win a 30-day membership to Drive495, and received a complimentary gift card to NY Golf Center.

Throughout the evening, attendees met and mingled as they enjoyed wine and light hors d’oeuvres. A fun time was had by all, and there were many requests for similar networking events in the future.

Thank you to all who attended to help make this a successful event!
