Beginning in December, registered Alumni receive emails weekly with internship opportunities that are directly looking for ACE GNY Alumni. ACE GNY staff send the names of the students that applied to each internship directly to the human resources director at each firm.

This event is a closed networking lunch between the alumni students currently interning in ACE GNY board member firms and ACE GNY board members.
