More than 10,000 Smith School graduates live and work in Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia, and now they have an alumni chapter to help them connect with one other.
The initiative came about from a push by Smith alumni working with the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, which has focused in recent months on engaging more regional alumni.
The school already has active alumni chapters in New York and Baltimore. But with so many graduates living and working in the D.C. region, it made sense to extend Smith’s alumni outreach.
The club launched with an entrepreneurship-focused networking event and reception on Oct. 15, 2015, in Tyson’s Corner, held in partnership with the University of Maryland’s A. James Clark School of Engineering.
Chapter leaders plan to offer programs and events that will attract alumni from all degree programs and career stages. Update your contact information on SmithConnector to receive information about upcoming alumni chapter club events. /CH/
