New York Drama Alumni Clan (NYDAC)
The mission of the New York Drama Alumni Clan (NYDAC) is to promote and support the alumni of the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama through career development and networking opportunities. We also seek to ease the transition from the safety of school to the realities of the industry. We host a series of events throughout the year.
After operating without any budget for the past few years, NYDAC has recently been reorganized.
By donating TODAY, these funds will allow us to have a more dynamic impact on our membership through:
- Career Developments Events; i.e., inviting industry professionals to speak and mentor our alumni
- Networking Events
- Winter Holiday Party: bringing all of our alumni together to provide networking opportunities across generations
- Showcase Events; i.e., Alumni Business Panel for actors showcasing in NY, "New York Minute": career speed dating for design, PTM, directing, writing, and dramaturgy students
- CMU Playwrights Festival
- And more!
We also present the annual NYDAC Scholarship Award to a graduating senior actor chosen by current School of Drama faculty.
These funds will cover the many costs these events entail: studio rental, beverage, food and other incidentals.
Lastly, we are thrilled that these funds will be earmarked for NYDAC and managed by Carnegie Mellon University administrators, which allows us to build a lasting legacy for the organization.
Thank you for your support!
