AFLSE Affinity GOLD Group - October Event

In 2008 the Alumni and Friends of the LSE in the US (AFLSE) will be rolling out industry-focused affinity groups and we want to be sure that we have you associated with the correct group.

You have been identified as having an interest in the GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade) Group based on information on record in our database. The GOLD affinity group was being launched in cooperation with the LSE Foundation based in New York City and was recently expanded to include the Washington, D.C. chapter as well. In the coming months we will be looking to expand it to other regions of the country. This group is comprised of students who have left the LSE within the past decade and provides an opportunity for alumni to meet, network and participate in interesting events within their city or region. It is a great way to meet other alumni and explore your neighborhood. Please feel free to contact with GOLD chair with any questions or suggestions for events.

In addition we would like to announce our upcoming event in New York. By popular demand we are returning to Brooklyn to take a tour of the Brooklyn Brewery and sample the beer that they make.  Please visit the link below for more details and to register for this event.

The specific industry-focused affinity groups that AFLSE has established are:

- Hedge Funds
- Investment Banking
- Legal
- Management Consulting
- Media
- Multilateral Institutions
- Real Estate
- US Government

Each affinity group is made up of AFLSE registered users or paid up members who study, practice or have an interest in that group defined in its broadest sense. You are welcome to be a member of more than one group. Each group will provide: - a forum for discussion at a variety of events;
- opportunities for professional networking and mentoring; and,
- links with LSE academics that have common interest with the group member.

Some of the employment information contained in our database is very dated; please take a minute to confirm your information in our database at Please also confirm that your home and office addresses are correct. We will be determining your city chapter membership based on home zip code in the next month. You should log on using the e-mail that we sent this message to. Please let us know if you have any problems logging on.

Please review your possible actions below:

- If you would like to remain in the affinity group assigned to you and your employment data is correct at our site, you need do nothing.
- If you would like to remain in the group assigned to you and your employment data is not correct at our site, please update your information on line.
- If you do not want to be a member of the group, please go to and deselect your membership from the group.
- If you want to be a member of one of the other affinity groups, please feel free to sign up at We are confident that this new initiative will be well received by many LSE alumni in the United States and look forward to your active involvement.
Specifically we need volunteer help from you in either assisting on building the mentoring capability or in developing meetings and programs for members. If you would like to consider becoming a committee member, please contact the current chair.
