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 to Sloan
- 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
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!
Octavio Faria Neto, SF99
President, M.I.T. Sloan Alumni Club of Brazil
