to the Manhattan Chapter of the GIA Alumni! We are one of the largest and most active of all the
alumni chapters and continue to grow. We
regularly scheduled activities for our members and guests.
Since we are in the heart of the
Gem & Jewelry
Industry we have a myriad of resources and speakers available to discuss varied topics concerning our industry.
Whether you are an gemologist, appraiser, collector, retailer, designer or manufacturer, our chapter has everything you are looking for in a professional organization. We are committed to keeping you up to date with all the latest information. You cannot afford not to become involved so please tune in often.
Please join us at a meeting not only to listen and learn from our speakers, but to network as well. At our events you will have a chance to win a special item in our raffle for The Eunice Miles Scholarship Fund which has been donated by our lecturer or a member.
We are a non-profit educational organization.
