Fellow Alumni,

Over the past three years, the Greater Philadelphia Chapter Leadership Council has worked tirelessly to promote the Villanova community throughout the region:
 - We have planned and executed over 60 Chapter events;
 - Organized pregame receptions and game watches—two of which were featured in local network news broadcasts and shared with Chapter Presidents across the country;
 - Run successful networking events on campus and at unique venues such as the Union League and The Kimmel Center;
- Expanded our social programming with movies, ice skating events, and trips to River Sharks and Phillies games; 
- Completed service projects with seven different organizations to serve countless individuals throughout Philadelphia and its suburbs;
- Sponsored two "Taste of Wine" fundraisers; raising over $21,000 for The Rainy Day Fund and The Make A Difference Fund;

In doing so, we have also grown a healthy reserve of funds for our future events and initiatives;
- Developed a social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn;
- Have been highlighted and featured in numerous Alumni publications;
- Received the Alumni Association’s Leadership Award and Reverend Ray Jackson Community Service Award;
- Recruited a fantastic set of alumni volunteers from diverse backgrounds and class years to serve as Committee Chairs and members.

In 2012, we want to continue to build off of our past successes. We want to:
- Continue to offer a wide variety of athletic, networking, service, and social events to meet the needs of the alumni who live, work, and travel throughout the Greater Philadelphia area;
- Increase alumni engagement by continuing to improve on our marketing and communication strategies by utilizing social media, leveraging our chapter website, and effectively reaching out to Villanova alumni in the Greater Philadelphia area; and
- Develop a strong Villanova networking and business development community in Philadelphia; 

We hope to see you at one of our next events this year. Please be sure to follow us on social media or look for communication on future events from:
