An update from the Roosevelt Island Business Networking Group
The sixth meeting of the Roosevelt Island Business Networking Group welcomed about 20 members, ranging from financial services professional to photographer, at the Community Room of Island House on Tuesday evening, May 22th, for the bi-monthly meeting. As usual, the meeting kicked off with informal conversations and a business card exchange, as familiar faces and new members shared ideas about their respective small businesses and solo practices.

The member presentation by Christina Getz included a video that highlighted facts and statistics about personal finance. Many in the room considered how planning for the future of their business, plus their own financial future, and that of their family, might require more attention than they had previously given to these matters.

Attendees were reminded to submit a listing of their contact information and services to The WIRE and to the Roosevelt Islander online. Members are encouraged to meet with others in the group and consider what they have to offer and what they might need from a colleague. The Roosevelt Island Business Networking Group on LinkedIn continues to grow.

The next event will be held on Tuesday, June 5th at 7:30 am at Riverwalk Bar & Grill. Please contact Tom Wood at to give a presentation. Members are welcome to bring Island friends and neighbors who are also small business owners and solo practitioners and expand the networking group.

On Saturday, June 9th, the group will have a table on Roosevelt Island Day, to attract membership and to promote the services of participants. Please contact Tom Wood to volunteer to sit at the table for an hour's shift between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm.
