This event will enable us to broaden our reach to alumni living in all of the US!
Reaching out to more alumni in the United States
Our Chapter was founded in New York City, home to the largest concentration of Leuven alumni in the USA. We currently reach about 350 people, from NY, NJ and CT. As a first step, we started a regional subchapter in Washington DC, to serve the Nation's Capital, southern Maryland and Northern Virginia. We hope more subchapters will follow.
Meanwhile, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are investigating new technologies for virtual events, or combined live-virtual events. Any suggestions are welcome. We are excited by the prospect of connecting with all alumni of KU Leuven, across the United States. The combined live-virtual event was in fact already tested at the Special Evening with Prof. Krugman and De Grauwe (Nov 1, 2019, see elsewhere in this newsletter and the Past events page). We hope to announce new and exciting news & events soon!
