REBNY'S SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
The Board's social and professional activities complement one
another. The Annual Banquet, spring and fall golf and tennis outings,
membership lunches and dinners, and other such occasions give REBNY members
the chance to enjoy good company, make contacts and obtain information.
Friendships made at these events often become meaningful in our members'
careers and social lives through the years.
REBNY'S CIVIC ACTIVITIES
Ultimately, the product our industry sells is New York City;
any contributions REBNY members and staff make toward improving New York
also enhance the well-being of our industry.
Committed REBNY members have:
- Created a non-profit corporation to assist the city's effort to serve
- Sat on community boards
- Organized fire safety seminars
- Sponsored liberal arts college graduates training to become teachers
in the public schools,
served as Principals-for-a-Day in those schools and provided books and other
needed by the Board of Education.
- Served on the boards our city's major cultural and health care institutions
These are only some of the Board's civic efforts to elevate New York's reputation
and make our town a better place in which to live and work. Through their
public-spirited work, dedicated REBNY members have been responsible for
attracting investment to New York and spurring its renaissance as an international
business capital. Through its committees and social functions the Real
Estate Board offers its members many opportunities to serve their city
and their industry through civic endeavors.
