Alumni Forums: An exclusive HBS Association of Northern California benefit now available

It is our pleasure to announce the launch of Alumni Forums for members of the HBS Association of Northern California. This proven peer-group program offers these important benefits: 

  • A place to tackle your most challenging business and personal issues in a safe environment
  • A peer support group with deep connections and no hidden agendas
  • Development of your professional leadership skills
  • Learning invaluable communication and relationship building tools

An Alumni Forum is composed of 8-12 HBS alumni, matched by criteria such as organization size and level of responsibility, who come together regularly for exchange and discussion. Topics and issues are as varied as the Forum’s members and may range from the effect of the economy on one’s business to the challenges of sudden success to finding a healthy work/life balance.

We will be launching new Forums and encourage you to complete this brief survey now if you are interested in joining a Forum.

"My Forum has helped me become a better president,
a better husband, a better father, and a better person."

John Macomber (MBA 1983), YPO Member, HBS Faculty

Members of Young Presidents Organization (YPO), Entrepreneurs Organization, and Harvard Business School Alumni Clubs have experienced the power of Forum firsthand. They know that a Forum of peers can help them grow their businesses, make tough decisions, and build stronger relationships, personally and professionally.

The program is offered in conjunction with Alumni Forum Services, the Alumni Association’s exclusive Forum contractor, and is open to all HBSANC members or any HBS alumni who agree to join. Forum members also agree to pay an initiation/orientation fee of $600 and an annual fee of $1200 (a fraction of the cost of comparable programs). The initiation fee is fully refundable if either you cannot be placed in a group; you chose not to join the proposed group; or you attend the orientation and then decide not to continue.

"Most HBS alumni events involve casually socializing with other alumni.
In contrast, my HBS Alumni Forum has been the most impactful
HBS-related experience I have had since graduating,
allowing for far deeper and meaningful conversation."

Marc Zablatsky (MBA 1992), Member, HBSANC and
Former President, HBS Association of Boston
