Welcome from the President
A special welcome aboard to the alumni, families, friends
and fans who have joined the club for its 49th year! I am thrilled
to extend greetings to you on behalf of CCW and its Board of Directors – a
dedicated group of volunteers that steers and organizes club efforts to keep
the Cornell spirit vibrant and the camaraderie strong throughout the alumni
base in DC, Maryland and Virginia. We have an exciting year planned and I
invite you all to join us in the myriad events and activities around the
national capital region.
The Cornell Club of Washington takes pride in being one of
the largest – and one of the longest running - Cornell alumni organizations in
the world. Incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, CCW supports student
scholarships awarded bi-annually to local Cornell undergraduates and
Cornell-in-Washington students. Few clubs can say that they program more than
200 events a year – and CCW can!
We’re always looking for more ideas and more volunteers to
help plan and organize our club endeavors. If you’d like to get more involved,
please drop me an email or contact any of the CCW’s officers. We’d love to hear from you, and I
encourage you to also join us for our monthly board meetings at the Cornell
Center, held on the second Tuesday of every month from September through June.
I am excited and humbled to be leading this amazing, energetic
network of Cornellians whose passion for the university glows ever brightly in
the heart of our nation’s capital. Thank you all for your continuing support of
the club! I hope to C U at many CCW events throughout the year. Let’s Go Big Red!
