[Excerpt from HBS alumni website article, “Celebrating the Impact of Nonprofits“, below]
It’s been a little over five years since Len Polaner (MBA 1954) and a small committee of like-minded alumni in the HBS Club of New York launched the first Seniors Program, a series of social and educational activities geared for alumni over the age of 65.
To balance the club’s career skills and networking activities that often take place in the evenings, the Seniors Program engages older alumni through a series of daytime social, educational, and cultural events.
“We essentially made the club more senior-friendly,” says Polaner. “Our events take place during the day, between 10 a.m. and 2 or 3 p.m. and we try to mix a bit of business education with every activity.”
