This article announcing the June edition of FUSION‘s Party with a Purpose series appeared in the Telegraph Journal on Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010.  The details of the event on Friday, which I will be hosting/Emcee-ing, can be found in the last paragraph:

This month, FUSION is partnering with the Union Club to host June’s Party with a Purpose. Party goers will have a chance to learn more about one of the uptown’s oldest institutions, network with current Union Club members, and learn more about the history of the organization and the benefits of membership.

They will also be able to tour the building and services that are available.

The Union Club was formed in 1884 and has been at its current location on Germain Street since 1890. It shares many parallels with FUSION in that it’s a member-run organization formed by local business professionals in the city who wanted to have a place to gather with their peers to discuss and share ideas.

This remains the Club’s main focus, and its membership is made up of individuals from a broad range of professions and industries.

“The membership of the Union Club has been, and continues to be, comprised of ambitious business people and influential Saint John leaders, which is what many of our members aspire to, so it’s very appropriate that we have this opportunity to host an event together,” said Kelly Lawson, chair of FUSION’s Ambassador’s Committee, which organize the Parties with a Purpose. “It’s an exciting opportunity very much in keeping with the original mandate of the Union Club.”

The club is located in one of the uptown’s most stately heritage buildings, and houses two main dining areas – a formal dining room and main lounge that are open in the afternoon for lunch. There are also six private function rooms for meetings or small gatherings.

Members have access to these rooms for meetings or private events.

There is a cost for membership, and in return members are given special benefits in addition to simply having access to the building and its services. They are able to interact with other members at the club’s organized professional and social networking events, which take place throughout the year.

The Union Club is affiliated with more than 40 other private clubs across the country and around the world, in cities such as Ottawa, Toronto, Boston, New York, London and Hong Kong. This network gives members access to these affiliate clubs and the services they offer, which in many cases includes accommodations.

June’s Party with a Purpose will take place Friday from 5:30-7:00p.m. at the Union Club. For more information, please visit www.fusionsj.com.

See you there!
