Club Leadership

The Brown Club in New York strives to foster community among our alumni in the New York area. The club is run by a volunteer board of alumni from a range of industries and organizes events to provide access to thought leaders, promote engaging insight, assist in career development and offer a range of opportunities to network and socialize with fellow Brunonians.

We are always looking for diligent and dedicated alums to join our Board. If you are interested in attending a Board meeting or joining the Board, please contact Board Meetings are held on the first Monday of every month at the Cornell Club.

If you have an idea for an event please use this event form. For all other inquiries please use and we will direct your email to the appropriate officer.
