The first stop was New York and up to the 44th floor of the Hearst Tower in the heart of Manhattan. Alumni enjoyed the impressive views and the opportunity to network and catch-up with UAL friends. Nigel Carrington gave special thanks to Bruce Reynolds, East Coast Alumni Association President, and his fellow committee members for helping build and strengthen our local alumni community. Thanks also went to LCC alumnus Nick Brien and his team at iCrossing for allowing us use of Hearst Tower and his generous support of UAL alumni activity.

Two days later, the team landed in Los Angeles to host a special evening at Wallspace Gallery in Hollywood. Angie Stimson, President of the West Coast Alumni Association, has been doing a great job over the past number of years in bringing together the LA Alumni community, especially through her work organising the annual London Transplants exhibition.
