Reunion Update:

 

Greetings ’88 Classmates—it’s getting closer to our Reunion!

This year's Reunion panels promise to be enlightening as we explore 30 years of managing the good, the bad, and the unexpected while pursuing personal and professional endeavors.

Here is a snapshot of the program options for each day.

Friday Afternoon:
How Emerging Technology will Change our World- Tech is woven into the fabric of our lives and is constantly changing. This interactive session will explore how technologies like CRISPR, 5G, blockchain, and artificial intelligence will impact our business, communities, and the environment and what we can do to prepare for the coming change.

Journalism- Public watchdogs or “enemies of the people?” Even before President Trump branded the press “fake news,” the rise of hyperpartisan media, Internet hoaxes, and tribal politics fueled a level of distrust unseen 30 years ago. Join journalist classmates who’ve covered Washington, the world, and local news for TV, radio, and newspapers for behind-the scenes stories in the era of disputed facts.

Change-making, service, and social impact- We all want a better world. But what does that mean, and what’s the best way to make it happen? Join us for self-reflection, discussion of what service to our society looks like in 2018, and an invitation to join in positive impact as a class over the next decades.

Aging: Managing Our Families and Ourselves- As we approach mid-life, many of us, while aging ourselves, have also become caretakers for our parents and older relatives. This panel explores different aspects of aging, both for us and our loved ones.

Saturday Afternoon:
Policy making: Finding Veritas and Understanding in the “No Compromise” Era- In a world increasingly defined by tribalism and where facts don’t seem to matter, how do we better support and lead productive civic discourse and policymaking? Join us to hear from classmates who have been trying to make a difference.

Professional Pivots at Mid-Career- We entered the workforce before the Internet revolution, and we faced the Great Recession right in the prime of our careers. Many of us responded by 'pivoting' in mid-career. A diverse group of our classmates will speak candidly about their pivots, including addressing such issues as: What motivated them? What unexpected challenges did they face? What was the key to making the pivot succeed?

Glimpses- In the last thirty years, we have collected an incredible array of experiences. Some experiences have been tragic; others have been unbelievably joyful or simply unexpected. This panel provides snapshots from classmates and will encourage others in the audience to ask questions and to give us a glimpse into their lives as well.

We really look forward to seeing you there. If you haven’t already, make sure to register now! 

Thanks,

Tom Monahan, Mayra Rodriguez Valladares, and Ben Nguyen

In other news from the planning committee:

Elections for the Class Committee will occur at the Reunion; please let Fernando Laguarda know by September 14 if you are interested in serving a five-year term or if you are interested in serving on the Executive Committee or as a Class Officer. The plan is to nominate the committee and host a call after the Reunion to elect an Executive Committee, which in turn will elect officers.
