2016 Copa America Convention Assistance Fundraiser
For the past few years ALPFA Boston has organized a Summer Mixer event to provide its members and affiliates with an opportunity to network and interact in a social environment. We also leverage this event as an opportunity to raise funds as means of providing monetary assistance to student and professional members interested in attending ALPFA’s Annual Convention, but are unable to afford it on their own.
The ALPFA National Convention is a four-day conference that offers both students and professionals opportunities to impact their careers by participating in professional development and student workshops, networking with members from across the U.S., meeting companies committed to diversity and inclusion and learning from leaders in the business community. Convention attendees also have an opportunity to participate in exclusive networking receptions, a career fair with over 100 participating companies, a university forum, and a one-of-a-kind gala event. The 2016 ALPFA National Convention will take place from August 5 – 9, 2016 at Dallas, TX.
This year, through the Copa America Fundraiser, we aim to raise much-needed funds to assist students in attending the Convention. However, due to the expressed needs and requests by some of our professional members, our Chapter hopes to raise enough funds to financially assist professionals, not sponsored by their employers, and enable them to attend the convention.
The Copa America Fundraiser is an evening event open to both members and non-members of ALPFA. The event will be held at Lir on Boylston St, where attendees will have the opportunity to network and watch the Quarterfinal #1 match of the Copa America.
