Dear Members and Alumni,

This is my last newsletter as President of HCS - no cause here for being sentimental, however, as I believe the Club has made great strides; the broad interest we have in the upcoming elections for the board speaks for itself and for that I am very proud.

We wanted to deepen and broaden the interest, support, and engagement from the alumni here, and we are on track.

We wanted to increase the membership, we wanted to further the interaction we have with the HBS Club, other university alumni clubs, and the community at large, we are on track as well.

There is much MUCH more we can do to improve what the Club does and how we do it, and that will be through you all.

We continue to have a good roster of varied events, but welcome more!! Please send us your ideas and thoughts and raise your hands to help.

In the meantime, I hope to see you on March 20th at our AGM, which will be followed by a cocktail reception with Provost Alan Garber.

Best wishes,
Rebecca Woo
President, HCS
