The letter was sent before I finished. Here it is in entirety.
I was actually editor of the Harbus back in 1978 (seems recent to me.) Now I am membership director of the HBS Association of Northern California (HBSANC). I believe that we and NY are the two largest HBS Alumni groups in the US.
Somehow we would like to communicate to the graduating class of 2005 that membership is FREE TO CLASS OF 2005, no strings attached. This is so grads can have access to the job postings, contact info, and attend events at member prices, and generally get involved. We also accept grads who might not be out here yet, but might be interested in visiting, or keeping an eye on job postings or Bay Area connections. We also have a big welcome party in September. Could I write this up as a story with email contacts and how to join info? We would have some additional info on the Club’s Community Partners work and other details of the Club’s actiivities and offerings. Thanks!
