Dear Members and Alumni,

I feel as if September has been a manic month - what with the return of travel and conferences and meetings and F1 and seeing people (finally!) on top of the usual busy autumn months after the summer lull.

I suppose we should all be grateful that Singapore is truly coming into its own as the “where all shall meet” destination of choice - but I personally am beginning to feel some fatigue - pleasant though that change might be after these few years.

That being said - we continue to have a roster of upcoming events as you can see below - but most importantly - I do urge you to sign up for our Annual Dinner on November 10th.

We are really eager to make the evening a successful gathering of alumni and people we have not seen, as such, for a while, plus we have some key speakers and guests that I am sure you would all like to meet. Let’s join together as Harvard!! and rally our spirit of camaraderie; there is an underlying purpose of education and giving back to the community at the event which is so meaningful. Please register and come.

Rebecca Woo
President of HCS
