Announcing the Hullabaloo Breakfast

Part of being such a fast growing and diverse Club is testing and trying new things together. This month, we're going to kick off our first in a series of morning networking breakfasts as a way to be intentional about getting to know other Aggies in a professional way here in New York City. 

There are only going to be 12 tickets available for this pre-fixe breakfast to make sure we keep ourselves to one table and everyone in attendance has the chance to meet each other. But, if we find out that there is more interest in this kind of event at this time of day, we'll look to grow the venue and number of seats. 

For all the details and to buy your tickets, GO HERE 

If you'd like to come in the future, but can't make it work this month, email president@newyorkaggies.com to be added to the Hullabaloo Breakfast mailing list and be the first to find out when and where the next one will be. 

Thanks and Gig 'Em

Howdy Ags, 
What an amazing time to be a New York Aggie. From our University climbing in the national ranks across the board in academics and athletics, to having the #1 NFL Draft Pick in representing the maroon and white, to spending and incredible evening together last month at Aggie Muster with Coach Kevin Sumlin - we're excited to have you all as a part of this community. 

For those of you that have recently joined or gotten to know us better, we are thrilled to welcome you to a very fun moment in the New York Aggie's history. Growing faster than we ever have before, we are seeing more and more people stepping up and leaning in to make this a Club that we now know has the attention of the Association of Former Students as what Club's in the future can become.  (And sometimes we make the front page of the Battalion)

This past month really gave us all the chance to see how many people are excited about what we are doing and we have so many people to thank, especially Coach Sumlin and Jacob Green for coming up and being our Muster speakers. We'd also like to thank the team at Webster Hall and Franco Vitella Catered Affairs for an incredible venue and menu, and our very own Shantanu Bansal for being our event photographer and capturing so many great moments, some of which were featured in The Eagle newspaper! (did you get some good pics that night? email them to goodbull@newyorkaggies.com.)

We've got a busy summer coming up, get out your calendar and make sure you come play with the New York Aggies as much as you can.

New York Aggie Muster

Over 150 Aggies gathered at the historic Webster Hall in New York City last Friday, April 21st, to celebrate one the Aggie family's most special traditions, Aggie Muster. Muster is about coming together as Aggies to honor and celebrate the past, present, and future of the Aggie family. It is about something bigger than ourselves; it's about that indescribably strong Aggie spirit that transcends our individual lives. As they say,  "From the outside looking in, you can't understand it. And from the inside looking out, you can't explain it." We are proud to say that this Muster was the largest in club history, and one of the largest Musters outside of Texas. 

This year, we were honored to have two incredible guests join us, Head Coach of our beloved Aggie football team, Kevin Sumlin, and 12th Man Foundation VP of Major Gifts and Endowments (not to mention 3 time Super Bowl champion), Jacob Green.

We want to extend a special thank you to the families of those on our Roll Call - thank you for joining us to honor your loved ones.

Thank you to this year's sponsors that made our incredible Muster possible:

Coach's Sponsors: Aggies on Wall Street, Mike Shaw Automotive, Dennis Simmons '72, Alan Mitchell '85, Craig Jeffers '98, and Marc Wolf '00

Ceremony Sponsors: Sententia Capital Management, Felicia Medina ‘00, Bret McGowen ‘03, Shantanu Bansal ‘16, and Alex Lambros ’17

And last but not least, thank you to each and every Aggie that joined us. We were honored to Muster with you.

Softly call the muster,
Let comrade answer, “Here!”
Their spirits hover ‘round us:
As if to bring us cheer!
Mark them “present” in our hearts,
We’ll meet some other day.
There is no Death, but Life Eterne
For heroes such as they!
— from Roll Call for the Absent by Dr. John Ashton, Class of 1906

We hope to see you soon at more NYAMC events! 

The 2017 NYAMC Officer Team

April Newsletter

Howdy Ags, 
When we were pulling together this month's newsletter, we realized how quickly the New York Aggies are growing and how very bright the future of this Club is. We've gotten several notes from powers at be in Aggieland asking us how our Club is so much more active, fun, and red ass than other Clubs. We've responded, "Thanks and Gig Em, but we're just getting started."

That being said, you're gonna want to pull out your calendar and make sure you don't miss any of the fun things below, especially the incredible evening that the Muster committee has planned on April 21st!

Over the past month, we've been all over the city and we want to give a huge shout out to our friends at NYCountrySwag for the Country Brunch, the Waylon for hosting our Happy Hour AND the Texas Independence Day pre-party, Shiner for being the best beer (Presidential edit) and the fun at Texas Independence Day with Bowery Presents team who pulled it all together.  

Before we get to all the amazing upcoming activities, we wanted to make sure to encourage you to to check out the newest online home for the New York Aggies, LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/company/new-york-a&m-club We know a lot of y'all are thinking about what comes next in your careers and we want to make sure our Club is a resource for you there as well.

February Newsletter

Howdy Ags, 
Have we told you how much we love the Members of this Club recently? Well today seemed like a good day to mention it and say we'd definitely put a valentine in your mailbox if we were all back in elementary school again. And that love is just going to keep on flowing into the months of fun ahead. From our own happy hours to behind the scenes meet and greets with country music legends, and what might be the most epic Muster in New York Aggie history, you're going to want to mark you calendars now. 

But first, a huge thanks to everyone who came out his past weekend to serve our community with God's Love We Deliver (check out the pics on Facebook!) We also want to thank Aveneda Cantina for their hospitality at our Post-Holiday party and the Ainsworth for a great evening at our January Happy Hour. 

We are on the look out for great pictures from New York Aggie events and need your help. There are two ways your can share them: 1) post them on social media and tag @newyorkaggies or 2) email them to vicepresident@newyorkaggies.com and who knows, maybe you'll see yourself on our website or in the Texas Aggie Magazine soon!

2017 New York Aggie Officers

As the largest club outside of Texas, the New York Aggies represent one of the most eclectic and welcoming clubs in the country. Started in 1969, this club has seen a lot of changes, both to Texas A&M and to New York City. But through it all, our mission hasn't changed: 

To establish and maintain scholarships for needy and worthy students; to assist the community, the University and the Association in any worthy undertaking to the best of our ability as a club and as individuals; and to maintain and encourage the fraternal spirit of friendliness and helpfulness that is traditional among A&M Former Students.

At this year's Post-Holiday Party, the New York Aggies voted in the 2017 Officers and the next chapter of this historic and red ass Aggie Club began. 

Serving as President is Andy Ellwood '04. Andy has lived in New York for going on 8 years and works in the startup world, helping build and grow technology companies. His is currently Cofounder and President of Basket. Andy's charge to the club at the elections this year was to make this club the most inclusive, inviting, and welcoming club in the country, not just outside of Texas. (Watch out Dallas and Houston - we're coming for you) 

Serving as Executive Vice President is Ashley Powell '11. Ashley most recently served as Vice President of Activities and was responsible for some some of the most well attended and creative events in New York Aggies' history last year. Ashley works in Investor Relations for a large private equity company in New York, but is found most frequently hosting visiting Aggies and members of the club for spontaneous meet ups and impromptu yell practices.

Serving as Secretary is Dana Dunn '07. Dana is originally from San Antonio, TX and works in with Chase Bank in their home lending department here in New York City. Representing the Brooklyn constituency of the New York Aggies, Dana is a welcome new addition to this year's Officers and the reigning starting shortstop and clean up batter for the Kick 'Em Aggies, our Club's summer kickball team. 

Serving as Vice President of Finance is Mike Zapata '00. Mike is returning for another tour of duty making sure the New York Aggies keep their financial house in order. His experience working in the financial markets in New York City and the discipline of being a member of the Corp of Cadets while at Texas A&M have served the club well in this role and we're excited to have him back for another year. 

Serving as Vice President of Scholarships is Nate Bays '13. When it comes to passion for the New York Aggies' purpose, no one brings more passion than Nate. We are thrilled to have Nate serving again this year to help us identify and to award scholarships to worthy students in the Greater New York area on behalf of the club. When not rapping the club, Nate works in oncology research and can be found attending many live music events around NYC.

Serving as Vice President of Activities is Jordan Knesek '14. Since the day Jordan arrived in New York, she's been in the middle of activities of every kind so welcoming her to the this year's Officers was a very natural transition. Jordan previously chaired our Muster committee and might hold the record for most new New York Aggie recruits in a single year.  Jordan is all about people activities outside of the club as well working in employee development for the Fox News Channel.

If you see anyone of the Officers of the New York Aggies at an event, at a meet up, or out and about in New York City, please say Howdy. We are committed to making this huge city the friendliest and most welcoming place for Fightin' Texas Aggies and we hope you'll join us for the incredible year of good bull, red ass, hullabaloo that we are planning. 

If you want to get more involved in the club and take a more active role in making the New York Aggies the best club in the country, please send a note to President@NewYorkAggies.com and we'll find a place for you to serve that works for your schedule and your interests!

Thanks and Gig 'Em!
