A Message from the President...
Welcome to the HBSSA website!
Dear Club Members,
We welcome you to 2013 and wish you all a prosperous year.
The HBS Club of South Africa is pleased to serve as your port of call for everything HBS related. We will be using our website as a channel of communication and have posted some events for the first half of the year.
The current officers are eager to have additional volunteers assist on various events, so if you have interest to get involved, please contact us.
This year holds a multitude of ways to participate in our club.
We are running the new alumni venture contest along with the HBS Club of Nigeria. The contest calls for entrants from all over the Continent. This is our third year of participation and we hope to be able to send a finalist to HBS in April 2013. Please see the following important dates and information if the contest is of interest to you:
February 12th @ 6pm - Informational Conference Call (UPDATED)
Dial in: +27 11 911 0097
Pin: 968 4433
March 15th - Final Judging
The contest is supported by several virtual seminars. If interested in participating in the competition, please email me at email@example.com
In addition, we will be organizing an informal happy hour for networking with members. After a successful GNN last year, we will reunite at the Greek venue, Mezzepoli, at Melrose Arch Square on March 7th at 6:30pm. There will be a cash bar. See link to register here.
On May 16, we will hold an AGM and elections for officer positions. More information will be supplied closer to the date.
We will be adding events during the year for participation with our sister club, Harvard University Alumni Association of South Africa. We will also be including speaker events, when we have faculty visiting South Africa.
Lastly, on June 6th, we are planning an evening dinner and wine pairing with an auction. This will be a fundraising event for future club activities and some educational projects that we would like to support as a club in South Africa.
We look forward to engaging and making this year a productive one for our club.
Please feel contact any of the club officers if you have questions.
President, HBS Club of South Africa
