The Islanders Business Club took its message on the road, inviting a select number of new and potential members to an intimate luncheon at Morton's Steakhouse in Great Neck Tuesday afternoon. This was the second of many IBC Impact Programs scheduled for this summer to help spread the word about Long Island's most exciting business networking club.
Fifty participants heard firsthand from IBC Executive Director Mike Bossy about the privileges of being a member of the Islanders' exclusive networking program.
"We know that there are numerous networking groups on Long Island," said Bossy. "However the Islanders Business Club offers a unique benefit. When people come to our events, everyone is in a good mood. Hockey is great entertainment. You come and meet and talk business for a few hours before the game, and you have something to look forward to, with the Islanders playing afterwards. It's a great combination of the business and sports worlds."
Also joining the event was Islanders legend and Director of Player Development Bryan Trottier. Guests wanting to hear about the team's direction and future heard directly from the man in charge, GM Garth Snow.
"We're in the process of expanding into the Long Island market," said John Baldante of Wachovia. "We're very interested in the Lighthouse development project and the Nassau Coliseum. We want to be a part of Nassau County's continued development in the future. With our partnership with the Islanders we will show people that we put a stake in the ground and that we're here to do business. Hopefully, our relationship with the Islanders will start small, work out big and benefit all of us together."To have the Islanders host an IBC Impact Program at your favorite restaurant or in your backyard at a barbeque, please e-mail Islandersbusinessclub.com or call 1-866-96-NYICE.
