Harvard Club Annual Meeting Returns! (possibly...)
We are making plans for a possible in-person annual meeting of the club this summer. This page is to help us gauge interest, preferences, and turnout. Please read through and give us your input by clicking below.
With vaccinations rapidly expanding and the state's social distancing rules once again allowing for in-person gatherings, the Harvard Club of Fairfield County is considering holding our 2021 annual meeting in person. We are very excited to take this step and to have the opportunity to see Harvard friends off of our video screens!
Tentatively, we are considering an outdoor gathering with a more limited capacity than our usual annual meetings, at our traditional venue, the Country Club of Darien, or a similar club. This could take the form of an (informal) sit-down dinner, or a cocktail party. The focus would be strictly social - there would not be a speaker (apart from the brief business meeting required by our by-laws). We would also recognize the new admittees to the classes of 2025 and 2024 and welcome them to the club.
The protocols to be followed will depend on the circumstances at the time and the state's and the venue's rules. We will respectfully ask that only people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19, or are otherwise immune, attend, however, on an honor system.
Please click HERE to let us know whether you would like to be part of this event, and pick the option that best suits your preference:
- an outdoor sit-down dinner (note this may include being seated with people outside your household/party)
- an outdoor cocktail party
- I would NOT attend in June, but WOULD likely attend if the event were held in late August / early September
- I would NOT attend an in-person annual meeting for the foreseeable future
If your spouse or other guests from within your household would attend with you, please choose the appropriate number of "registrations."
Note that this is a survey only, NOT a commitment to attend the event, and you will not be charged. If and when we schedule an in-person meeting, there will be a separate registration link circulated.
If you would like to share any comments regarding the annual dinner, or the club's return to in-person events in general, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
