Dear Harvard-Radcliffe Alum,
On behalf of the Board of Directors, it’s my pleasure to welcome you to the 2015-16 academic year. I invite you to help us make this a year to remember! It will certainly go down in the annals of Harvard history as such; with record-breaking successes in its “One Harvard” campaign, there have been no shortage of memorable moments. Alumni choose to give in myriad ways; some give money, some lend their expertise, and many give their time. The reason we give any of these things is emotional; the magic of our Harvard education was born from a transformational experience deeply rooted in human connection. And we continue to foster rich and meaningful relationships well beyond our years within Harvard’s gates.
Our mission, likewise, is to bring alumni together in meaningful ways. We hope you will join us and enrich our local community of alumni by becoming a member of the Harvard-Radcliffe Club of Philadelphia! We are privileged to kick off the 2015-16 year with a highly anticipated Fall Opener Event held at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia on Wednesday, Oct. 7 titled “Bending the Cost Curve in Medicine.” This event will feature a panel discussion with local Harvard experts Ezekiel Emanuel MD ’88, PHD ’89, Ralph Muller AM ’68, and Kevin Volpp AB ’89. Learn more about this special kick-off event and RSVP online by clicking here. This promises to be a special event you will not want to miss!
Please also find below a Calendar of Events that are planned; additional events will be forthcoming. Your participation in events is paramount for our success in accomplishing our vision for a strong, vibrant local Harvard community – we hope to see you at one or more of the many diverse events we offer!
Alumni from all Harvard schools are welcome to join, and we are pleased to extend membership and membership benefits to spouses of alumni and to parents of current students and alumni as well. We encourage you to consider becoming a Sustaining Member, which supports the Club’s efforts to provide unique events and unique venues to our alumni. In addition to giving you access to Club events at special pricing levels, your membership also supports the Club’s Scholarship Program, a very meaningful effort that directly supports deserving undergraduates from our area year after year. We also invite you to become involved with the Club by becoming part of our Programs Committee.
Please read on to learn more about our Club, and consider JOINING OR RENEWING TODAY, either online at hrcphilly.com or by mailing a Membership Application Form (click here to download), and indicate your level of interest in becoming more involved. We look forward to seeing you at a Club event this year!
