Darien Neighbors, Global Players

Thank you to JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes, who launched our new series on March 8 with his fascinating look into the airline industry and the culture that has propelled JetBlue’s success. We appreciate the large and enthusiastic crowd, who asked great questions, and enjoyed not only Robin’s presentation, but the JetBlue Mint class boutique wine reception preceding his talk, and the opportunity to win Mint airline vouchers.

Our dynamic new series continues in April and May with more of your Darien Neighbors providing insights about the issues and trends in their industries.

As this series is in lieu of our annual fundraiser/gala, please consider making a donation to the DCA if you are unable to attend.
