Dear friends of BAIA,
Here is what’s new:
- Redesigned BAIA web site: the new site spells out what BAIA is all about. It lists upcoming events on the home page, and showcases the most recent discussions within the community. The new look and feel makes navigation a breeze. In short, we hope that the new web site will make it easy for you to find the information you need and to get involved with the organization. Check it out at www.baia-network.org and tell us what you think. Please share your feedback on BAIA Link or just send us an email at email@example.com.
- Revamped BAIA Link: this is where our online community congregates to find out about news, jobs, interesting and useful nuggets of information. BAIA Link has currently more than 850 members and operates on a social networking platform. Its is the first online network launched in the United States by a chartered Italian business organization. Take a look at recent discussions and be sure to post your questions or suggestions. You’ll be amazed by the wealth of knowledge you will uncover.
- Our social media presence is now seamlessly integrated: check out the new BAIA Facebook page, BAIA Twitter page, and LinkedIn group – and make sure to become a fan and/or follow BAIA. We want to foster vibrant on-line conversations within the BAIA community – and your contribution is crucial!
These changes reflect a stronger commitment for BAIA to serve the needs of a growing Italian community in the US. They also reflect a very ambitious agenda set by BAIA for its 2010 activities. Thanks to the increased appetite for information and contacts in the business communities operating between Italy and the US, BAIA will launch a series of new initiatives in 2010. More on this in upcoming blog posts.
We are grateful to the Italian diplomatic mission to the US, the Italian Embassy in Washington and the Italian Consulate in San Francisco, for their unwavering support for this project. These institutions strongly believe in the value of BAIA and in the role that BAIA Link plays in bringing together the business communities operating in the US and Italy, with a special emphasis on bridging the knowledge and contacts gap between industry, academia and the investor community.
Executive Director, BAIA
