Dear Members and Alumni,

In the spirit of collaboration, we have quite a rich list of offerings in this newsletter! Some are in conjunction with other alumni clubs here in Singapore, and others are in collaboration with other Harvard clubs and SIGs. Although we cannot meet in person, we are striving to create a rich virtual programme for everyone.

I would also like to add that we continue to be focused on the issues that international students currently face; so would love to hear from any of you - students and alumni alike - if you would like to reach out to show your support, we are here to help you connect and be a voice.

October is already proving to be an interesting month in the run-up towards the US elections - markets and general sentiment will likely be somewhat tumultuous.

Please stay well and healthy and most importantly, maintain a sense of humor in face of it all,

Rebecca Woo (AB '89)
HUAAS President
Harvard University Association of Alumni in Singapore (1)
Life Members have paid $1,000 for membership. We are grateful for their generosity and want to acknowledge these special members.
