Members of the Harvard Club of Naples enjoy many benefits:
Members are invited to attend upwards of twelve to fifteen events each year beginning in November and extending through April. The events are diverse in nature, ideally designed to appeal to the multi-faceted interests of our members. Any related costs are reasonable and stated to cover the cost of the event. For example, we have hosted the President of Harvard University, deans of Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences as well as deans of the Graduate Schools, and members of the Harvard Management Company. We hear from various local outstanding graduates of Harvard. We bring in interesting speakers from across Naples to update our members on the status of our community. And annually, we join the Yale and Princeton Clubs for an Economic Forum, where experts in the industry bring us up to date on the State of the Economy.
Other events for the season might include a tour of the Naples Museum of Art, a night at Artis-Naples to enjoy a show, a performance at the Sugden Theater, a luncheon with the Yale Club to watch Harvard and Yale's football teams engage in “The Game,” a visit to the Naples Botanical Garden's Christmas Night Lights or to the Red Sox Spring Training stadium, as well as the annual spring Ivy League picnic co-hosted by the seven Ivy League schools. And each season is launched with the Club's annual Welcome Back for the Season cocktail party open to all Harvard alumni!
As a member, you will meet old friends and make new friends as you enjoy the various events scheduled for your eduation and entertainment throughout the season. The Club also produces and provides to all members an annual directory, listing over 300 alumni/ae in the Naples area that are members of the Club. Your dues payments will ensure that you are included in each year’s directory.
Finally, as a member we encourage you to become involved in any of the Club's many committees. As a member of the Schools Committee, you can interview local high school students applying to Harvard's undergraduate program or perhaps present the annual Harvard Book Award to outstanding junior class members of all high schools in Collier County. Or you might assist the Schools Committee in organizing a spring reception about Harvard for these and other students entering their senior year of high school. As a member of the Club's Fellowships & Internships Committee, you could participate in the Club's summer and winter internship programs, including hosting a Harvard College student as an intern at one of the local not-for-profit organization. Or you might be interested in joining the Club's Professional Education Programs Fellowship Sub-Committee or the Non-Profit Leadership Prgram Scholarship Sub-Committee, where key educators and non-profit executives are identified to receive scolarships to attend executive level education at Harvard's Graduate Schools - bringing expertise and thought leadership back to be shared across our local community.
These benefits are yours for a modest dues payment of $50 per year, which are used to meet administrative expenses. Please join today and bring your Harvard friends with you.
