harvard membership

Why join?  There are many reasons to do so:

•              Programs featuring exciting speakers, including Harvard professors or other notable alumni.  Past program speakers have covered wide-ranging and timely topics such as secrets to entrepreneurial success, leadership, the search for the optimal diet, terrorism, Putin, Houston’s biotech future, and an inside look at the world of the Supreme Court.   

•              Special events to share with your spouses, significant others, and friends. 

•              A variety of networking and social events to allow you to maintain old friendships and build new ones.  Recurring annual events include the Annual Picnic, the Harvard/Yale Game and the Holiday Party, and past networking /social events include behind-the-scenes tours of museum exhibits, a ballroom dance class, wine tastings and concert outings.

•              Community outreach by the Club and members.  The Club has helped fund programs such as TeachforAmerica and the Early College Awareness Program, has funded summer scholarships and sent administrators, teachers and heads of Houston schools and non-profit businesses to Harvard for business and graduate training.  Starting in 2009, the Club will be implementing its pilot mentorship program to help recent graduates.  

•              An efficient and successful Schools Committee program that successfully interviewed over 900 Harvard College applicants last year!
