Don’t Miss Out on W&M Weekend in NYC

The William & Mary Alumni Association and its Board remain committed to providing outstanding opportunities to connect our alumni with each other and alma mater. The newest benefit we have rolled out to alumni, students, parents and friends is William & Mary Weekend. Back by popular demand, William & Mary Weekend will soon be spotlighting the best of the university in the city that never sleeps. On May 18-21, the entire Tribe community will have the opportunity to connect, discover and celebrate in exclusive settings throughout New York City. Registration is now open, so get ready for extraordinary experiences and memories that will last a lifetime!

Alumni Association guests will have access to special tours and events, many of which are not available even for New York locals. This weekend has been created with input and the hard work of our New York City alumni volunteers (especially honorary chair Joe Plumeri ’66, D.P.S. ’11 and committee chairs Mark Linaugh ’84 and Janice Linaugh), your WMAA board and the W&M Advancement staff.

W&M Weekend will allow us to bring the best of alma mater to you. Unique events include:

• W&M Weekend in NYC Kickoff with keynote speaker Joe Plumeri & Raft Debate
• The annual William & Mary Alumni Association Gala & Auction at the iconic Metropolitan Club
• A dynamic TED-style talk featuring GE’s Beth Comstock ’82 and Ellen Stofan ’83, HON ’16, former chief scientist of NASA
• Private 9/11 Memorial Museum Tour & Discussion with David Kelley ’81, former co-chair of the 9/11 DOJ Investigation

In between these signature events will be exclusive cultural tours, lectures and programs at NYC landmarks such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York Public Library, Feinstein’s/54 Below, New York Stock Exchange, New York City Ballet and a unique W&M comedy event featuring alumni and headlined by our very own Carmen Lynch.

We have limited space, so register early. For more information and to RSVP, visit
