Harvard University Association of Alumni in Singapore (1)
Dear Members and Alumni,

Let us welcome the new members to the Harvard Club of Singapore Board!!

They are :
Gerald Tan HBS GMP ‘2, and
Nara Nahm COL AB ’92

En-Ming Ong COL AB ’11 has also stepped into the position of secretary for a year as Allen Chu AB ’92
has had to resign for other personal committments.

We would also like to thank Allen and Arthur Lang AB ‘96 & MBA ’01 for all their time and contribution to us in their years on the board.

For those of you who were able to attend the AGM, you will know that we are honored to have T. Sasitharan accept the HCS Fellow Award this year, and we hope that we will be able to have a larger scale, in-person, Annual Dinner in the fall where he will be able to make a more formal and detailed presentation at that time. Sasi has made amazing contribution to the arts and culture of Singapore specifically but also in that he has showcased Asian theatre and drama, thought and creativity, generally, to the international community.

You will also note that I have (not so subtly) - referred to our organization as the Harvard Club of Singapore. The history of our name is somewhat convoluted, but suffice to say that legal issues have been resolved, much to our satisfaction.

Otherwise, it does finally seem like we are beginning to be able to truly meet in larger groups in person - which is exciting!! We have a few events in the works as it is, so please do keep informed via our newsletter and Facebook postings.

See you soon,

Best regards,
Rebecca Woo
