The Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) is dedicated to becoming a truly international alumni community. It seeks to cultivate and support its network of alumni around the world by helping them maintain their engagement with Harvard and create connections with one another.
More than 46,000 of Harvard's 345,000 alumni live outside the United States and are supported by a network of 188 Harvard Clubs in locations around the globe. Through a series of alumni education programs, regional conferences, reunions, and Club activities, the HAA encourages the growth of this global network and helps international alumni remain engaged with their University.
Whether they choose to attend an HAA Global Series conference, participate in an HAA travel program, or help students and recent graduates find work and study opportunities in their respective regions, Harvard's international alumni are contributing to the University's future while, at the same time, benefiting from Harvard's global reach.
HAA Global Series
The 2008 Global Series event, hosted in partnership with the Harvard Clubs of China, will take place in Shanghai from March 28 - 30, 2008. Previous Global Series events were held in Toronto (2007), New Delhi (2006), Mexico City (2005), London (2003), and Beijing (2002).
Office of International Alumni Affairs
To support its international programming, the HAA maintains an Office of International Affairs at its flagship base in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This office works closely with alumni volunteers around the world to advance University priorities and to explore new ways to reach out to the growing numbers of international alumni.
International Harvard Clubs
Today, one alumnus in every 8 lives outside the United States, and the HAA international club network is expanding in response to the growth in international alumni membership. In the past five years, the HAA has recorded 15 newly established international clubs. The 2007 Harvard Club Directory lists 111 domestic clubs and 77 international clubs, and plans for additional international clubs are underway. With a total of 188 clubs around the globe, graduates around the world have numerous opportunities to participate in Harvard's future and cultivate meaningful ties with the University and with fellow alumni.

Alumni Leadership Conference
Every February, the HAA sponsors an Alumni Leadership Conference (ALC) in Cambridge for domestic and international Harvard Club officers. During two days of alumni-led workshops, panels, and meetings, club delegates have the opportunity to exchange experiences with other club leaders, discuss shared concerns, and attempt to solve common problems, as well as hear from Harvard faculty and administrators. Every club is strongly encouraged to send at least one officer or delegate to the conference each year.
Join alumni leaders from Harvard Clubs around the world for the 2008 ALC, being held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on January 31 & February 1, 2008. Alumni panel discussions will address topics including succession planning, ways to bring Harvard to your club (no matter how far from Cambridge you may be), nuts and bolts for smaller clubs, and how your club's demographics influence your work as a club leader.
