"I have been serving as the Faculty/Staff Advisor for ABLE since 2008. During this time, I've been a fixture at the weekly e-board meetings providing input on programs, events, and activities as needed. I am truly impressed by the incredible students who make up the executive board. Their commitment and dedication has enabled the club to grow with each passing school year. In April 2012, I was honored to receive the Outstanding Student Organization Advisor Award during the annual President's Awards for Leadership Ceremony. In addition to supporting ABLE, I also an one of the two Academic Advisors in the School of Business. (Along with the Director of Undergraduate Student Services, Susan Maloney)."
"I joined ABLE my Fall semester of my Sophomore year. I was virtual my freshman year of college and coming to campus in the Fall was a huge change for me. I knew little to no one so I thought joining a club would help me get acclimated. I was first introduced to ABLE at the Block Party and was honestly blown away with everything ABLE offered, they were so welcoming which was so comforting. I attended every meeting after that and applied to be an intern which was the best decision I could have made because I met my best friends and made lifelong memories. I am now your President and couldn't be happier! I cannot wait to work with such an amazing and inspiring group of people."
"Coming into University at Albany as a fall freshman I was in search of ways to get involved. I attended ABLE’s informational and recognized right away that it was an organization I was meant to be a part of. Little did I know how welcoming the club would be and how many great opportunities would be provided. After the inspiring experience of being an ABLE intern, I decided to apply to be an Events Coordinator. Throughout my semester on ABLE’s Junior Executive Board I was graciously guided through this new and ambitious responsibility from quality leaders on the Executive Board itself. I could not be more thankful for the connections and friendships that ABLE has allowed me to form. I am overwhelmed with excitement for the bright future that this club holds."
"I chose to join ABLE because I wanted to get involved with a club on campus that aligned with my interests and also to go outside my comfort zone and meet new people. ABLE stood out to me because of the workshops they held and the community service events they organized. My favorite parts about ABLE is the resume, interview, and professional dress workshops. I learned so much valuable information that I will carry with me when I start my professional life. I’m really looking forward to meeting all our new members and rekindling with our returning members!"
"I joined ABLE because I was looking to get more involved on campus and to make new friends. Becoming a part of ABLE has been the best decision I have made at Ualbany thus far. I have already made so many friends and countless memories while also becoming more professional and making new connections. ABLE is truly an incredible group of people that pushes each other to be the best versions of themselves."
"I joined ABLE in the Fall Semester of my Freshman year. I was looking for ways to get involved on campus and I first heard about ABLE through a class presentation in my Business School Direct Admit Seminar and decided to join. I wanted to be a part of a business club to advance myself professionally and make some friends, which is exactly what I've done. I have made lifelong friends and memories while gaining valuable professional skills which I have put to use, I am looking forward to this semester to see where it takes ABLE!"
"I transferred to UAlbany my Fall semester of sophomore year, which is the same semester I joined ABLE. I decided to join ABLE after meeting those at Block Party, hearing everything the club has to offer, and to meet new people. From the workshops, community service, and to the events, I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. My favorite aspect of ABLE is organizing events, and seeing how our ABLE family comes together through our members. I strongly believe this club is something every student can benefit from. I am very excited to see how the club will continue to develop and I am extremely happy to be a part of it."
"I joined ABLE in the spring semester of my sophomore year, because late is better than never. I knew I wanted to get involved with people who have the same dreams and aspirations as me, and ABLE was the perfect place. As a local to Albany, the name Albany Business Leaders
Emerging was very intriguing, because I want to be a business leader in Albany. The open and welcoming environment of the club really drew me in, enough to make me apply for the internship my first semester in the club. I don’t regret any part of my decisions thus far. Getting involved with ABLE really showed me that clubs can be fun and uplifting, but also professional and educational. I feel honored to be here and I can’t wait to see where this year takes us!"
Director of Affairs
"When I was a sophomore at UAlbany, I was searching for new ways to put myself out there, socially and academically. After meeting ABLE at Block Party, I attended Informational and decided to join right away! One of my favorite parts of ABLE is learning about the diverse passions of all the members, and seeing visions of the organization come to life. Part of my position is to keep current members engaged with Alumni, and from that role I have seen what past members of ABLE have hoped and dreamt for this student organization. I am always looking forward to seeing past and new faces join our ABLE family, in order to keep our hopes and dreams flowing!"
