Sloan Club of Brazil
Welcome to the Sloan Club of Brazil.
Dear Brazilian Sloanie,
It is our pleasure to write the first letter from
the President of M.I.T. Sloan Club of Brazil. The foundation of
the Brazilian chapter of the Sloan Club has been a dream of many
Alumni for years. Last October a group of highly energetic Sloanies
got together and really made it happen!
We created the legal entity, Sloan Clube do Brasil,
elected the first Board of Directors and raised enough funds to
cover the start up costs. We organized the first event last May,
with the presence of the Sloan Fellows 2003, Prof. Richard Locke
and the Sloan Fellows Director Stephen Sacca. We developed the Brazilian
Sloan Club website with the support of L.A.R.C. with the objective
to create a place for the Brazilian Alumni interact. The main achievement
was to break the inertia and make a dream come true.
The plans are ambitious but with the appropriate
support from the Brazilian Alumni, Alumni Relations Office and Sloan
I am convinced that we can make a difference in our communities.
The mission of the club is:
- Build alumni/ae involvement with and commitment
- Encourage financial support of Sloan by its alumni/ae
- Enhance the public image and presence of Sloan
through its alumni/ae
- Strengthen the connections between alumni/ae and
to provide services to alumni/ae
We encourage every Brazilian Alumni to join the club
and participate. We are committed to transparency and focused in
meeting the associates needs.
We would like your continued feedback and thoughts.
If you have not been receiving our emails, make sure that the Alumni
Relations Office and the Brazilian Club has your current address.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your comments.
Finally, I would like to thank
the whole group of people from Sloan and the Brazilian Sloanies
that made it happen!
