RSVP deadline Friday 5/22 for 30th Anniversary Event!

"Jaime has been on the front lines and is regarded as one of the leading New Urbanist architects in the western hemisphere," said former Albany Roundtable visiting speaker James Howard Kunstler, author of The Geography of Nowhere, The Long Emergency, and most recently, the novel, World Made by Hand.

If you haven't purchased your tickets yet -- nearly 100 of you already have -- please act now to join the Albany Roundtable on Thursday, May 28 from 6:00 - 8:00 PM, at The University Club of Albany, 141 Washington Avenue, as we celebrate 30 years of civic discourse with visiting speaker Jaime Correa!

An urban planner, architect, and professor at the University of Miami, Correa is the author of Seven Recipes for the New Urbanism, published January, 2009, and SELF-SUFFICIENT URBANISM: A Vision of Contraction for the Non-Distant Future.

Your ticket will allow you to enjoy beer, wine, soft drinks and delicious appetizers from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. with people who – like you – are active in business, the arts, not-for-profits, governments, neighborhoods and urban activities. A thought-provoking and insightful presentation from Jaime Correa follows a brief program commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the Albany Roundtable, wrapping up at about 8:00 p.m.

The University Club will offer a cash bar from 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. for guests of the Albany Roundtable who wish to continue networking and socializing after the program.

Please make your reservations for this historic event by close of business on Friday, May 22. Download an RSVP form (link at right under photo) and send it in with your check to show us that you value the Albany Roundtable, and the role that it plays in engaging a wide variety of people in the business of envisioning our future!

Hope to see you on May 28!

Colleen Ryan
President, Albany Roundtable

Great to hear about this 30th anniversary event. I am also planning my store’s 4th anniversary party at one of LA event venues. Will be having something unique and amazing for the day. Just want to make it best and memorable day.
