President's Welcome

Dear Club Members,

I am honored and excited to serve as the President of the Wharton Club of Seattle. I would like to thank the previous team for their hard work and dedication to making the club a vibrant and diverse community. They have set a high standard for us to follow and we are grateful for their guidance and support. I would also like to introduce the new board members with whom I will be working together to lead the club in achieving its goals and vision. The newly elected board members are:

This team is made up of driven, passionate, and talented individuals who bring a wealth of experience and skills to the club. I am confident the team will do an excellent job of serving the club and all its members. The Wharton Alumni Association is an exclusive and exquisite network. As the President of this Club, I believe it is my responsibility to help this network thrive. I want this club to be the first stop for creating and finding opportunities and so want to make it easy to open doors.

A key goal I’ve set for myself, and the board is to make this a vibrant club with exciting social and business events. We have some amazing ideas in mind and are thinking about social events (happy hour, wine tasting, etc), speaker series/fireside chats featuring experts/leaders from various fields, networking events for old and new graduates, partner business school events, and mega events at Wharton scale. We will announce the details and dates of these events here, so please stay tuned and mark your calendars. We hope that you will join us at these events and make the club a big part of your lives. Please consider joining the various social media channels – LinkedIn (link), Facebook (link), and Instagram (link).

We plan to introduce an affordable annual membership fee of $60. We want to make sure that the club is accessible and valuable to everyone who wants to join and benefit from its activities and resources. We also want to reward all loyal and active members who contribute to the club’s growth and success. Therefore, we will be offering some exclusive benefits and perks to our paid members, such as discounts/early access to event tickets, opportunities for leadership mentoring, etc. Please proceed to sign up now.

Finally, if you are interested in volunteering, creating/hosting an event, or would like to introduce us to a notable speaker then please reach out to us. Email us at [email protected] and we will get in touch with you.

Looking forward to a wonderful year ahead with you and appreciate your continued support and involvement in the club.

Sreeram Murkuri, WG14
