We are a 100% driven Volunteer Organization, and we find that it is 100% gratifying to represent two of the world's Great Institutions at the same time. Here is a sampling of our activities and programs in the past few years:
On a national or "official" basis, we operate as the Harvard Veterans Alumni Organization Inc, an incorporated 510-c-19 non-profit corporation, and SIG of the Harvard Alumni Association. We have hosted events from 10 to 250+ in Cambridge, DC, San Francisco etc. We have conducted wonderful moving memorials and celebrations at Harvard's Memorial Church for Veterans and Memorial Days; we have hosted Beer Calls, a major presentation regarding of Medal Of Honor Project, and a few fundraisers.
On campus, in deference to our population of about 250 students and fellows who are Veterans and active duty Military, we are the Harvard Veterans Organization. We have hosted several well-attended Welcome to Harvard pre home football game tailgate BBQs; co-hosted the recent University Welcome's to Harvard; offered financial support to individual Veterans groups at our grad schools; and hosted a number of local Beer Calls etc.
Here are some ideas as to how you can help....and we are always open to your new ideas:
Leadership Team - Help re-energize the entire organization, as an Officer, Director, Regional Director; develop agenda and planning for short and longer term, both on campus and nationally. It's good fun, and great for the resume.
Events Team - Organize and run the Welcome Tailgate BBQ; the campus celebration of Memorial and Veterans Days; organize Veterans events with Belfer Center, Harvard Athletics, and other Harvard groups; organize and host events with your local Harvard Clubs (hikes, parties, speakers, arts or athletic events); work events as they take place; work to re-establish the Harvard-Army football series
Communications - Maintain new website/calendar; interact with other on campus and regional Harvard Veterans clubs; coordinate news and events with HU Communications Office and publications; identify and invite all Veterans/Military on campus; update and distribute monthly newsletter
Outreach Team - Identify and solicit donors; interact with Alumni who are Veterans/Military;
Harvard Veterans History Project - Research and grow the information on our website; organize events about Harvard's long, proud history with the militias and US Military; organize historic tours of Military Memorials on campus, and away
