On behalf of the NUBAA Board of Directors, the NUBAA Summit Steering and Programming Committees, and the Northwestern Alumni Association (NAA), I would like to thank everyone for the robust support of the 2nd Annual NUBAA Summit, Salute to Excellence Gala, and Celebrity Golf Outing, held February 25-28, 2016 in beautiful Los Angeles. These events served several purposes, including fellowship, development of business and entrepreneur skills and knowledge and support of the NUBAA Achievement Scholarship (NAS). We are proud to announce that our pledge total for the NAS now exceeds $350,000 in just over 5 months of fundraising, and we are well on our way to our goal of $600,000. Special thanks go to our sponsors Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, Toyota/Lexus and William Blair.
The Summit and associated activities had over 200 participants across the various events, more than doubling the attendance at our inaugural event. Even more important than the star-studded participation was the energy, emotion and enthusiasm shown for Northwestern and friendships established long ago and in real time.
In a very brief period of time, The Summit has become the signature Club event within the world of the Northwestern Alumni Association. Revisit the experience with us. We have over a thousand photos available for your viewing at www.nubaa.org and on the NUBAA page at Our Northwestern. Simply click the “SEE NUBAA” button on the home page, then select from among the following options:
- Summit Opening Reception
- Summit and President Next Level Luncheon
- Salute to Excellence Gala
- Celebrity Golf Outing
As you look through the pictures, you will notice we are organizing all of our pictures into more easily accessible photo folders. If you have a collection of pictures to share from either the Summit or any past event (Destination Homecoming, the MultiCity Mixers, or the 5K Race to Diversity, for example) and would like to share them, please share a Dropbox folder or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, don’t forget to make a donation to the NUBAA Achievement Scholarship, which you can do by clicking here.
We look forward to seeing you throughout the year and at next year’s Summit, during which NUBAA will be celebrating its 30th year as the first NAA organization. Thank you for your support of Northwestern, NUBAA and the students. We are proudly purple.
