elliot_profile_cropped President's Welcome

As President of the Harvard Club of Santa Barbara, serving Harvard alumni/ae in three counties (Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obisbo), I welcome you to the Club and our website.

Throughout the year, the Club sponsors a variety of activities, among them lecture/dinners with current Harvard-connected speakers, informal lunches and discussions at local clubs and restaurants, social events (e.g. receptions and game nights), and outings (e.g. special tours of local sites of interest) in our area. In 2017 we organized nine events, which you will find by clicking on the "Events" tab above. Two of these events were lectures in our new "Harvard careers" series.
The Club, through its Schools Committee, organizes the work of the more than 30 local Harvard alumni/ae who interview the numerous high school seniors in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties who apply each year for admission to Harvard College.
The Club is currently making a major effort to make its activities appealing and accessible to recent alums. Our annual membership costs only $45, and we now offer a discounted rate for a three-year membership. Please join us by registering here.
In this period in which our social fabric seems to be fraying, our Club officers and directors are especially committed to working with alums in our area to reinforce Harvard’s commitment to community responsibility. We look forward to seeing you at future events.
W. Elliot Brownlee, Harvard College ‘63
