Greetings from President Richard LeBer
Dear Harvard Club members,
Hello and welcome to the website of the Harvard Club of Naples! (Which is really the Harvard Club for all of Southwest Florida -- but that's a longer story for another time.)
For the second year in a row, I find myself wishing for a return to a more normal season for all of us. Last year, we hoped we would experience a return the ability to meet in person as a group, after the pandemic waned. While that came to pass, unfortunately, Hurricane Ian came along and disrupted season for many of us. We hope this year is calmer.
We are planning a lively array of events for the 2023-2024 season. We encourage you to watch for updates and bulletins and to check the Events section of our website regularly for news. Don't miss our exciting events!
I want to thank all of you for your continued generosity in paying dues and making contributions to the Club's Schools and Education Fund. Given all the wonderful people, events, and charitable activities that make up the Harvard Club of Naples, how can you resist renewing your membership in the Club? Please click on the Membership tab in the header to renew your membership and make an additional contribution to the Club's Schools and Education Fund!
We have a fabulous group of Officers and Directors (listed in the About Us tab in the header). The Board is working hard to make our Club a vibrant place where Harvard alumni come together for stimulating events, educational opportunities, camaraderie and charitable activities. All of us on the Board look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming events!
As always, it is my great privilege to serve as the President of the Club. We have a terrific Club, with many diverse and wonderful members. I am here to serve you in whatever way I can.
Richard LeBer MBA '86
President, Harvard Club of Naples
