Events

ABNY uses its signature programs–Power Events, special briefings, educational events, Young Professionals programming, ABNY Women events, and special projects–to bolster civic engagement for all New Yorkers.


  • ABNY Member Events offer an opportunity for elected and government officials, as well as civic and business leaders, to present the ideas and policies they believe can help advance a better New York.
  • The ABNY Young Professionals network cultivates unique opportunities, online and in person, for the future leaders of New York City to explore the importance of civic engagement and learn about the critical issues facing our city and state.
  • ABNY Women uses its platform for women to explore, discuss, and foster change in the workplace and beyond through a series of events and talks by female leaders.

ABNY special projects build on the foundation created by the Census 2020 effort and work with community-based organizations to support and strengthen the most vulnerable New Yorkers and communities across the city and state.
