Fellow Alumni,

Over the past year, the Greater Philadelphia Chapter Leadership Council has worked tirelessly to promote the Villanova community throughout the Philadelphia region:

- We have planned and executed numerous Chapter events;
- Organized pre-game receptions and game watches—featured in local network news broadcasts and shared with Chapter Presidents across the country;
- Run successful business networking events  at unique venues such as the Union League and the Loews Hotel;
- Expanded our social programming with holiday parties, ice skating events, Center City Sips happy hours, and a group outing to a Phillies game;
- Completed service projects with seven different organizations to serve countless individuals throughout Philadelphia and its suburbs;
- Hosted the Philadelphia Chapter's first annual golf outing at Ramblewood Country Club in South Jersey;
- Sponsored our fifth annual "Taste of Wine" event raising $10,000 for our Chapter Scholarship Fund;
- Awarded a scholarship for the second year in a row to a current Villanova student in need.

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;
- Recruited a fantastic set of alumni volunteers from diverse backgrounds and class years to serve as Committee Chairs and members.

In 2015, 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:
