Wharton Club of the National Capital Region ROR -- Special Edition

Wharton Club of the National Capital Region ROR -- Special Social Distancing Edition

Greetings from the WCNCR Board of Directors. We hope that you and your loved ones are healthy and safe as we all navigate this difficult time. The Board did our first Zoom video conference yesterday, and it was just wonderful to see people face to face.

We are exploring ways to celebrate our Wharton connections -- a few of which are highlighted below. And we welcome any ideas you may have for webinars or other online activities. If you are interested in leading one of these events, please let us know. We will work with you to set up all the necessary online registration and access.

Be healthy. Be patient. Be in touch!
