A Note from the President
 
  Kenneth Beck, WG'87
President
 
Welcome to the Wharton Club of New York Member Web Site. The Wharton Alumni Association is one of the most exclusive and powerful networks in the world. As President of the New York Chapter, it is my responsibility to create and manage an infrastructure that can open doors, and provide business contacts, access, and opportunities for all alumni. We are fundamentally changing the way alumni interact with each other and with the school. One of the key elements to the success of this venture is our web site.

If you believe, as I do, that we should all TAKE THE CALL:
  • Wharton people should buy from Wharton people,
  • Wharton people should hire Wharton people, and
  • Wharton people should help Wharton people,
Then this web site is indispensable. In it you can find everything from a residential real estate broker to a financial planner; from phone equipment to office furniture; whatever you require, someone from Wharton has it or will know how to get it … all you have to do is call… And the contact information you need is here… all in one place… in a password protected, searchable data base of the 30,000 New York metropolitan area Wharton alumni.

This new site is not just an Internet vehicle. It is the Club’s intranet, and it is a work in progress. Soon you will be able to:
  • Better connect with your fellow alumni through a technology infrastructure hereto for unavailable to Alumni Associations in general.
  • Use Online Forums, to exchange messages, post job leads and opportunities, conduct general discussions, and receive and send feedback and suggestions.
  • Read the quarterly Newsletter, and obtain more in depth information about specific articles.
  • Receive more timely and better announcements on a regular basis.
This Website is a key way that we will make life-long networking a reality for The Wharton Alumni Association

While many volunteers have helped launch this web site, our Web Master Jack Huang is largely responsible for making it happen. Without Jack’s hard work, this web site would have taken another two years and would not be nearly as valuable. I cannot thank Jack enough for all of his efforts!

As you can see, our Alumni Association is more than just interesting events with phenomenal speakers. It is now about access... and you have it. Access to opportunities and people. Access to business leads, friendships, intellectual stimulation, investment capital, government, and career opportunities.

The Wharton Alumni Network is your most powerful tool for business, social, career, and intellectual growth. Use it! Use the Web site! Take the Call!

Sincerely,

Kenneth Beck WG'87
