Here are easy events that every chapter, regardless of size, can incorporate into their event calendar:

Networking Event:
A networking event in October, perhaps in conjunction with a football game, to welcome recent graduates who may have moved to your region.

Holiday Mixer:
A holiday mixer in December. Consider a potluck at your house or a no-host cocktail reception in a private room at a local restaurant.

Community Service:
A community service event in March, when chapters around the world exemplify Berkeley Haas’ defining principle, Beyond Yourself. View examples of chapter Beyond Yourself events.

Dinner Series:
In lieu of a speaker, organize an industry-specific, price-fixed dinner. An evening of focused discussion will be attractive to alumni who already have something in common. Secure an appropriate space, such as a private room at a restaurant or a large living room in a private home, to assure that meaningful conversation is heard.

Haaspitality Tours:
Originated by BHAN Orange County, “Haaspitality Tours” are compelling and easy to replicate. Use LinkedIn to identify an organization founded or led by a Berkeley Haas alumnus/a. Invite him/her to give a talk or a tour. What business leader can resist this opportunity?
