Ray Stephenson, the President of the JCOBAFL commented that, “this event will encourage collaboration and cooperation among various professional groups and alumnae affiliated with North American, the Caribbean and Jamaica . It also targets the younger alumni to get them involved in the activities of their associations, and to give them an opportunity to see how they can contribute to the schools which gave us the foundation to become the professionals that we are today.”

Damion Simon , a Director of the JCOBAFL, and the organizer of the Networking Night said, “this event is even more relevant in these times given the high levels of unemployment in South Florida today, the need for building a large network is even more important. The JCOBAFL are encouraging persons within our local community to come out, network and make some new connections.”

This year, in addition to hosting this event with the St. Andrew High Old Girls, the CBA and NABA, JCOBAFL have also extended invitations to other professional groups to participate.
