Serving the greater New York area Korean American communities since 1986

Great Seeing You at 

Our 30th Anniversary Gala!


Thank you for supporting KALAGNY at our 30th Anniversary Gala.  

See the event photos here.

This year's theme was "Halfway to Hwangab: Celebrating the Past 30 Years and the Next 30 Years to Come."  "Hwangab” is a Korean word that denotes the celebration of one’s 60th birthday and is considered the most important birthday milestone.  Traditionally in East Asian cultures, reaching one's 60th year of life was a significant accomplishment and cause for rejoicing longevity.  In KALAGNY's 30th year, our “halfway” point, we honor our past and present leaders and members for their founding efforts, sacrifices and transformative contributions that have made us the flourishing organization we are today.  Together, we look forward to another exciting period of growth, service to the community, and collaboration 

across generations of Korean-American attorneys and diverse colleagues.
