Fellow Harvard Alum and Harvard Club members,
Last week I attended the Harvard Alumni Association Spring Board Meeting in Cambridge in my capacity as the Director representing Australasian Clubs and Special Interest Groups (SIGs). And I am excited to communicate that at last week’s Board meeting Dr. Alice Hill (AB ’81, PhD ’91) was elected HAA’s First Vice President for the 2018-2019 academic year. This election positions her for the post of HAA President in the 2019-2020 academic year. This will be the first time, in 10 years, that the role of President has been held by a member from an International Club and the first time a President has come from the Asia Pacific Region (or indeed the Southern Hemisphere).
As many of you who know Alice, she has spent over a decade serving the Alumni of this Region. She has served as the President of the HCV and the Regional Director of Australasia to the HAA. Currently Dr Hill serves as a member of the HCV council, chairs the HCV Non-Profit Fellowship Committee and for the last 3 years has served on the Executive Committee of the HAA.
This appointment is a recognition of her passionate commitment to our Harvard community. And for those of you who have worked beside her, know that this honour is well deserved.
Please join me in congratulating Alice!
