HBS Club of Pittsburgh
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
I hope you all are having a great summer. As I step into the role of President of the Club, I’m looking forward to building upon the success that our past leadership has facilitated. It is my hope that the HBSCP can be a source of intellectual stimulation, social camaraderie, and generally a value-added and fun place to be engaged. On that note, I welcome any suggestions or feedback from members on potential events or other opportunities for improvement. Please do not hesitate to reach out anytime.
This past year’s in-person events included Audrey Russo, President and CEO of the Pittsburgh Technology Council providing a view of the rapidly growing Pittsburgh technology ecosystem, a tour of the Millie’s Ice Cream Factory led by founder Chad Townsend, Dr. Stu Hoffman’s outlook for 2023, and a tour of the new Moonshot Museum and business talk on Astrobotic Technology’s role in America’s return to the moon. And a couple alumni happy hours at fine local establishments.
For the upcoming year, our Board of Governors has decided to grant Membership for the 2023-24 Program Year at no cost to all area alumni who formally register on our website at www.hbspittsburgh.com. This means you are a Member of the HBS Club of Pittsburgh with all its privileges with no dues payment for 2023-24 and will receive Member discounts for all priced events. Enter www.hbspittsburgh.com in your web browser and click on “Join” to register or use the QR code at the bottom of this page to get to the registration page with your phone.
Events this coming year will be kicked off again with a dinner (cash bar) at the highly regarded Bar Marco in the Strip District which is discounted for all Member alums. Bar Marco was rated in 2022 as one of Pittsburgh’s top restaurants by Pittsburgh Magazine’s dining critic, Hal Klein. Members pay $25 (Members’ guests pay $50), representing a substantial discount on the cost of the dinner. That’s right, as a Member of the HBSCP, you can join fellow alums for a gourmet dinner at a reduced cost on September 20 (online registration/payment for the dinner required). Click on “Events” to find the Bar Marco dinner.
Additional events during the year, which may have a nominal fee to offset out-of-pocket expenses, will include business talks and cultural events as well as occasional “Happy Hours” at fine local establishments (Alums cover drinks, Club covers nibbles). Our first happy hour will be at PA Market on October 25th. And we plan to hear from PNC Chief Economist Stu Hoffman on December 13th at the AHYP Club to explain all that happened in this year’s economy and what to expect in 2024. Stu’s talk is always well attended for his down-to-earth assessment of the financial world we live in. More events are being planned for this fall and for 2024 and we will let you know as they are confirmed.
We hope to see you at one of our events! And if you have any questions about events, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
