The official Annual Meeting of the Harvard Business School Association of Boston happens only once a year, and we invite all HBSAB members, guests and friends of the Association to join us. The evening begins with a reception
to meet up with friends, old and new.
We'll sit down to dinner in the lovely Williams Room and will take time to reflect on our progress as a club over the past year, hear brief updates on HBSAB business from volunteer Board Members, and the HBSAB members will elect new members of the Board of Governors for the coming year as well as vote to approve new By-laws (please click here for information).
The capstone of the evening will be a signature address by our distinguished guest speaker, Professor Regina Herzlinger, the Nancy R. McPherson Professor of Business Administration.
"From Inside of the Ivied Walls of HBS" will be the topic of Professor Herzlinger's address - what it meant to be the first tenured woman HBS professor - framed within the context of the ongoing celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the first HBS woman MBA.
Professor Herzlinger's keen perspective from the inside will include her personal stories of trials and tribulations, and successes and near-misses that comes along with being a pioneer in a field that was dominated by Harvard men. You will not want to miss Professor Herzlinger.
Please join us for this special once a year meeting and dinner. All are welcome to attend, and your registration is kindly requested by April 30th.
