Meet Us On The Avenue


The Avenue of the Americas Association extends invitations to its members and guests to attend and participate in numerous programs each year. Among the current programs and events are:

Board of Directors Luncheons

Leadership of the Association falls to the Board of Directors who meet regularly to identify and address issues affecting the Avenue and its members, and to govern the Association. Director’s luncheons offer the opportunity to discuss the Association and hear from a wide range of interesting guest speakers.

The Annual Luncheon

Held each spring, the annual luncheon is both a social event and an arena for lively, compelling presentations by the city’s most important civic and business leaders. The luncheon is open to Association members and their guests.

The Green Street Award Program

This program recognizes building owners and tenants along the Avenue of the Americas for their efforts in adopting environmentally sustainable programs or improvements to their work place.
