It is an honor to be chosen to serve as this year’s President of Cap and Gown. I have been meeting weekly with Hannah Belitz (VP Mentorship) and Jacquelyn Wong (VP Finance) to plan programs for the 2012-2013 academic year. It is our intent to host events on campus which foster a sense of community while connecting Stanford women leader’s across generations.
We were excited to introduce the new members of this year’s Active class at the Tapping Tea on November 2, 2012. I am sure that you will agree that this incoming class exemplifies Cap and Gown’s high standards of academics, community involvement and leadership.
We have been busy planning and executing a number of events. On September 28, 2012, we participated in the Stanford Annual Fall Activities Fair. At the Activities Fair we educated undergraduate students about Cap and Gown’s mission of bringing together women who have demonstrated strong leadership and academic excellence throughout their time at Stanford. We are in the process of rolling out a mentorship program that will connect current Actives with Alumni members. The Actives are excited about the opportunity to meet with Alumni members to seek your advice on professional and personal development. We will also be organizing informal events throughout the year, where Actives can get to know each other with the objective of establishing life long friendships.
I am looking forward to working with the Alumni Board to make 2012-2013 a truly memorable experience for all Cap and Gown members. If you have any questions, comments or recommendations, I can be reached via email at email@example.com.
