HBS-NEO Harvard Business School Club of Northeastern Ohio HBS-NEO

Letter from the Club President

Harvard Business School of Northeastern Ohio Dear Fellow HBS Alumni:

I want to take the opportunity to personally thank you for your past support of the HBS Club of Northeast Ohio, and your confidence in our officers, committee members and administrative staff who help put together programs and events which distinguish us as one of the most dynamic and successful business clubs in Cleveland and also throughout the entire worldwide HBS network.

We have a busy 2016-2017 schedule with a lot of activities planned throughout the year. In the summer of 2016, Cleveland will briefly become the epicenter of the political world as the host of the Republican National Convention. We have a very special event planned in which we will honor former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, who will brief us on her latest philanthropic efforts with the Ruth Mulan Chu Chao Foundation and its relationship to HBS.

We will continue with an icebreaker event at the Metroparks Zoo, followed by a business media panel, several company tours, and our annual Christmas party. We will also hold our traditional Federal Reserve meeting, and both Connect and Educational Roundtable events with our usual array of educational, political, and business leaders that offer stimulating presentations on a variety of topics. Finally, we are continuing our amazing philanthropic efforts and community outreach efforts with some very progressive ideas which we hope will bring some of the best of HBS to Cleveland next spring.

As always, the Dively and Leadership Dinners will continue to be our featured events. These are simply the best events of the year. For example, last May, in one of the most moving events we have witnessed, the Gund family resoundingly accepted and deeply appreciated the recognition which we extended toward them at the annual Leadership dinner. It was a most memorable evening and by all standards, the least we could do to acknowledge their longstanding and often thankless efforts on behalf of our city.

We invite and encourage all HBS alumni in the area to consider the exceptional opportunity to connect with some of the top business people in Cleveland. We would love to have you join, and I would personally love to meet you and make introductions on your behalf. Please take a minute to fill out the online form and join today!
