President's Message

BCARNAHAN.jpgWelcome to the Wharton Club of Atlanta! Whether you are new to the Atlanta area or a new Alum, I hope you will find the site informative and beneficial.

I’m sure you are aware that our Wharton Alumni Association is vast and known throughout the World. Locally, we have over 1,400 Alumni and continue to grow each year. With a greater number of Fortune 500 companies relocating to our region, our Club stands to continue expanding beyond our current membership base.

Whether you are interested in professional development, intellectual stimulation or just plain having a good time, our club has it all. We have several events planned throughout the year. A few past and upcoming events include speakers from the community, an entrepreneurship panel, a breakfast series, Wine Tasting, a Craft Brewery tour, a visit from a Wharton Professor, several Happy Hours and a Holiday Party. Not only do we have our own events but we often partner with Penn Alumni as well as other Business Schools.
 
I encourage you to become a paid member for only $49 per year. Not only will you receive advance notice of upcoming events, but you’ll save money on event fees. Everything we do depends on membership support, so please join or renew your membership today. (Memberships are on a rolling 12 month period).
I have enjoyed living in Georgia for almost 20 years and have met many fascinating Wharton alums along the way. It’s my pleasure to serve as the Club’s President and I look forward to seeing you at our next event!


Best,

K. Blair Carnahan, WG ‘99
President
