More January 2019 News and Events

We trust 2019 is off to a grand start. We are here to offer what we hope amount to some bright spots to warm up your post-holiday haze.

If you aren’t participating in Dry January, consider joining the All Ivy Plus drinks, or go anyway to meet new faces. We are back in Soho for our annual Chinese New Year dinner on the last day of the month (food and drinks included in the ticket price). We also look forward to having Takeo and Itsuko Atsumi Professor of Japanese Art History, Matthew McKelway, in London from Columbia. We’ve arranged a co-branded event in partnership with the Japan Society—so be sure to save Thursday February 28th.

It’s not too late to get involved and give back your time as an alumni. If you want to work directly with the Club Board, please join (or dial in) the Open Board Meeting on January 28th. If you’d like to give feedback more indirectly, please fill out this survey (last chance) HERE. Or consider participating in the mentorship programme or CEO internship programme—info on both below.

Make sure you book for our events on the website and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for new announcements.

Please also keep in touch. Reach out at [email protected] if you need anything.
