Social and Special Events Committee

Reports to the Chair of the Social and Special Events Committee

Social and Special Events Committee:
Our committee develops social and special events that interest the entire Wharton alumni community.  In the past, we have had wine, beer and scotch tastings, singles mixers, dinners, sporting events, and golf lessons.

Volunteer Responsibilities:
Each committee member is responsible for researching and putting together at least one social/special event a year.  There is a good deal of flexibility in terms of event venues and themes.

Time Commitment:
Approximately 1-2 hours per week.  Note that you must have access to email which you can monitor on a daily basis, as much of the coordination among the volunteer team is conducted via email.  Being easy to reach and responsive will make the job much easier to manage.

All volunteers must be supporting (dues paying) members of the Wharton Club of New York. The type of person would be most suited for the position: Someone who likes to have fun! Are you a social person who is a good communicator, has great ideas, is organized and can effectively work through multiple tasks? This is the opportunity for you. We are looking for people who have an interest in connecting with their Wharton peers on the social side of life and who have the time to give to the Club. All volunteers must adhere to Club policies as evidenced by their signing an annual acknowledgement form.

Application Process:
Interested volunteers should complete the volunteer application and submit a resume to Gabriela Sanchez, the Club’s Administrator at  Once the submission is received, the applicant will be contacted by one of the Club’s volunteers. The Club expects that each selected volunteer will treat this volunteer "job" as seriously as a professional job and recognize that it is an extension of his or her professional world.
