It is that time again and the NYC Chapter of ASIS International is having our Holiday Luncheon on Friday, December 16th from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm. This year we are excited to hold the Holiday Luncheon at a new venue, The New Yorker located at 481 8th Ave, NYC; just a short walk from Penn Station. The luncheon is on the second floor in the Grand Ballroom, providing for a very unique and amazing holiday event.
A buffet lunch will be served including complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks. Registration for individuals and company groups can be made online below. There is only open seating for this luncheon. Tables are available however there will be no reserved tables; seating will be on a first come bases.
This year we will again have a raffle for a 55 inch flat screen Smart TV; all proceeds will be donated to the Companions for Heroes, a non-profit charitable organization. Companions for Heroes (C4H) provides companion animals obtained from shelters and/or rescues, who might otherwise be euthanized, free of charge to active duty military personnel, military veterans, and first-responders recovering from the psychological challenges they suffered during service to our country. C4H increases public awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other challenges confronting our country’s heroes; and rally’s support for animal welfare and the adoption of shelter and/or rescue animals. Please visit Companions for Heroes website for additional information.
As in previous years the NYC Chapter raffles many smaller prizes to attendees at the Holiday Luncheon to add excitement to the holiday festivity. Prizes are donated by member companies for which we recognize their generosity during the raffle. Companies wishing to donate a raffle prize should contact Craig Schwab at Chairman@asisnyc.org for arrangements. We ask that prizes be at a minimum of $150 in value.
Also, we will announce the winner of ‘2016 The Security Officer of the Year’. We have received several nominations from guard companies and have some excellent candidates. The recipient will be awarded a check for $1,500.
Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarships also will be awarded at the meeting.
Online registration will close on December 15th!
