The Financial Services Advisory Council (FSAC) held its annual spring reception on Tuesday, April 30, at The University Club of New York (One West 54th St., New York, NY). The evening program, which brought together over 150 alumni and friends of varied backgrounds and generations, featured a presentation by Thomas Curry '78, comptroller of the currency. Curry's remarks on bank supervision and regulation were followed by a Q&A session and social networking.
The mission of the Financial Services Advisory Council (FSAC) is to serve as an ongoing resource to Manhattan alumni in the financial community, to renew and strengthen relationships among alumni, the College and its students, and to raise the College’s profile in the financial services industry. The goals of the Council reinforce Manhattan’s founding Lasallian mission of providing opportunities to bright and deserving students, many of whom will be our future corporate leaders.
Last year's reception brought together more than 100 successful alumni in finance and related fields for an opportunity to network with their industry peers, get an update on the latest college developments, and hear about current trends that impact the financial industry.
As part of its fundraising outreach, the Council has adopted a goal of $1.5 million to support the Dr. James Suarez Endowed Chair in the school of business. The Council also seeks to provide alumni with access to prominent financial services corporate and public sector leaders, such as the honored panelists. In addition, the Council seeks to provide resources for students pursuing careers in finance and related fields in business and law through mentoring programs, expanded career recruitment, and access to alumni at all levels of the financial professions.
