Dallas Young Leaders Membership Drive Happy Hour 2012

The Dallas Young Leaders’ membership drive organized by Kevin Curley II and Eddie Geraghty took place at Trinity Hall and was very well attended.  We expect at least ten new members from the event.

Kevin spoke of the importance of those who had been attending functions for the past year to solidify their commitment by joining as members.  He talked about the Young Leaders New York Summit coming 17 January 2013.  Davey Devlin spoke movingly of projects in Ireland in which his mother and sister were involved and the difference grants from The American Ireland Fund made to their sustainability.  Caitríona Ryan spoke of the Annual Conference in Ireland and the benefits locally of being involved.  Eddie Geraghty closed the meeting part of the gathering by encouraging all present to sign up, not only for Dallas, but for the New York Summit.  

There was great enthusiasm all around for the Inaugural Dallas Emerald Ball and two visiting businessmen from Ireland, Bill Holland and Mike Sullivan, encouraged by Caitríona Ryan, solidified their commitment to a table.
