The Romanian-American Professional Network would like to thank everyone who attended the Annual RomAmPro Picnic on August 5th, 2018 in Ridgewood, NJ.
Over 100 Romanian-American professionals from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut came and enjoyed Romanian appetizers, mici, carnati, salam de biscuiti, prajitura cu visine, and joined in the traditional Romanian hora dance.
Both kids and adults took part in the games and activities—including volleyball, badminton, face painting, and science experiments from the Mad Science of NENJ booth. Our sponsors were a hit and the tombola winners were very excited!
All regions of Romania were represented, from Sarmisegetuza, Sibiu, Timisoara, Oradea, Cluj, Craiova, Iasi, Brasov to Bucharest—and numerous industries, such as financial services, technology, Blockchain, life sciences and healthcare, engineering, logistics, professional services, recruitment, just to mention a few. It was a great opportunity to share ideas, develop new friendships with like-minded people and contribute to a growing network of Romanian-American professionals. We look forward to seeing the same level of engagement and excitement at the next RomAmPro event (Romania's Day and Christmas Party) in December.
