“You cannot beat the Wharton Club of Washington DC for its unsurpassed level of informative, interesting, productive, and networking events. This is evident when other clubs and associations want to partner with The Club and when many non-Wharton folks are attending its events. President Alan Schlaifer, the staff and volunteers are a valuable regional resource and membership is an extreme bargain.”

- Rod Azama, WG’84

Very positive experience. Having participated in the activities of Wharton clubs in other regions, I can say unequivocally that this is the most energetic, proactive and well-organized Wharton club I've come across. Kudos to you and the rest of the board for the excellent job you're doing to bring alums in the area together.
