About the Long Island, NY Chapter

The Long Island Chapter Meetings on the last Wednesday of the month 6:30PM - 8:30PM (open 6pm for networking). The Chair of this chapter is Lew Bader. Rob Dreyfuss and Richard Schwamb serve as co-chairs.

We are meeting via Zoom. Links are sent after you register.

Please polish your introduction! Your networking time is a value added activity for you and your peers. Practice your pitch and try it out with your friends at The FENG. Compare contrast and revise it until you hear it in your sleep. This platform skill will serve you long after you land your next assignment.

Alumni members are encouraged to attend meetings and participate in discussions - it is a great way to give back to the group, and to maintain and build your network.


For those in transition who would like mentoring and job search assistance in a small self directed team of individuals who support each other throughout the job search process, we have our Long Island Job Club.

Meets THURSDAYS From 10 AM to 12 Noon

Location: We meet virtually on Zoom. Register below for the link.
If you are new to the group, please also write to the chairs below to introduce yourself.
