Tonight the InSITE fellows and board members gathered at P.J. Clark for our traditional end-of-year annual dinner and elections.
One of the sentences that we heard over and over again in the candidates’ speeches was ‘InSITE has been the best thing that’s happened to me in business school…’.
Many of us feel this way and are very excited to make this organization even stronger in the months to come. Everyone will have the opportunity to take on leadership roles next year, even those who didn’t win a formal position. Fellows can start a new initiative, organize an event, write a white paper or a blog post, schedule informal meetings with investors, etc.
And this is what makes InSITE a great place. It’s up to us to shape it, nurture it and use it as a platform to pursue our passions and interests as future entrepreneurs, VC’s or whatever it is we may end up doing.
During the course of the evening, InSITE awarded this year’s Alumni Achievement Award to Board Member Alex Ferrara (CBS, InSITE ’04), a partner at Millennium Technology Ventures, and a Director at Shopify, Director at OMGPOP and Director at SelectMinds.
Here the list of the new Officers:
President: Adam Kalamchi
VP of Sourcing: Brian Ballan
VP of Partnerships: Marianna Zaslavsky
VP of Operations: Owen Kirchner
VP of Events: Austin Clements
VP of Recruiting for Columbi: Zack Lane
VP of Recruiting for NYU Stern: Kevin St. John
VP of Alumni: Ed Rayner
VP of Special Operations: Zachary Schwarzman
VP of Communications: Lila Pla Alemany
AVP of Science: Megan Meguill
We also elected two fellows to be our Young Alumni for the Board: Abe Geiger and Vicoria Cheung.
