TRANSPORTATION TO THE HOTEL
For those of you flying in to Providence, RI, we have been recommended the Cozy Cab
Airport Shuttle. Normal cab fees are about $90, but this shuttle is only $25. It will pick
up guests right at the airport and drop them off at the Hotel Viking. It is highly
recommended that you make reservations with this shuttle, for it is very popular because
of the low cost. Cozy Cabs number is 401-846-2500.
RMC Intern Program at the American College. By Dave Krystel
This summer’s RMC intern at The American College is Bryan Yackulic, son of George
Yackulic, assistant vice president – management training, in the Agency Department. Bryan
has just graduated from James Madison University in Virginia with a finance major.
At The American College Bryan has significant responsibility related to the publishing of the
Wealth Channel Magazine, including a key role on the small team working on the next issue,
assisting with concept development, working with contributors, and helping the project stay on
time and on budget. He is also helping out to a lesser extent with other
This is certain to be a meaningful experience, which will provide him with a great introduction
to the financial services industry, a significant goal of our internship. Also note that he already
has some familiarity with New York Life’s business as he was mentored on a junior year
project by Senior Partner Tim Choi, and he worked one summer for his father while he was a
partner in the New Jersey GO. Bryan will also help produce a video about his experiences
which will be shown at our Reunion in Newport.
We again had an excellent response this year, the fourth for this program, with eighteen
NYL/RMC relatives expressing interest. The internship, which runs for eight weeks, from
June 13 to August 5, offers a competitive salary along with the opportunity to earn three
college credits, which may be transferable to the college the intern is attending. Remember,
the RMC Endowment Fund is supported by the voluntary, tax deductible contributions of our
members, which New York Life matches up to an annual total of $25,000.
Sincere thanks to all have contributed toward the success of this program which continues to
make a difference in the lives of young people and to help New York Life and our industry.
I bring greetings from the great RMC Board who wishes you all welcome to
the Newport Reunion!
Al Iovinelli, Bill Kelly, Brent Moore, Chuck Rowell, Danny O’Neal,
Dave Krystel, Eric Rubin, Georgene Sfraga Panza,
Marquis Jones, Michael Kraft, Norb Weisbeck, Wayne Bragg.
Anita Bergsten, President
