HCRT: Looking Forward in 2021
Dear Harvard Alums of the Triangle:
Happy New Year! After a year filled with hardships for the entire country, we welcome 2021. At the Harvard Club of the Research Triangle (HCRT), we have many educational, social, and community events planned for this year. We will be hosting a discussion series entitled “Ahead of the News”, engaging speakers in discussions on upcoming major events throughout the year. In addition, we plan to support the region through a number of community outreach events. Finally, we hope to add some fun social events with Harvard and Ivy+ alumni in the region. With our slate of fantastic new HCRT Directors, we are looking forward to serving our members in the Triangle with educational, engaging, and fun programming in 2021.
The “Ahead of the News 2021” Series
This year, the Harvard Club of the Research Triangle (HCRT) will feature a new series of lecture discussions called “Ahead of the News 2021.” We look forward to several significant events in the upcoming year—the Mars rover landing, the first 100 days of the Biden Administration, the Summer Olympics, etc. To keep our members engaged and informed on these topics, the HCRT will feature a lecture and discussion series by distinguished and expert speakers before the stories break in the national media. In this sense, the series hopes to keep our members ahead of the news.
If you are a member of the Harvard Club, thank you. If you are not, I encourage you to join. We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
John de Figueiredo, AB ‘88
President of the Harvard Club of the Research Triangle
