About Harbert Young Alumni
The Harbert Young Alumni program was launched in summer 2014 with pilot chapters in Atlanta and Birmingham. Since that time we have created new chapters in Nashville, Charlotte, New York and Houston. The primary focus of the chapters is to connect young Harbert alumni in each local area. We want participants to have fun, reconnect with college friends, and meet peers in the area who’ve also graduated from Auburn.
The signature activity of each chapter is a quarterly happy hour and speaker series. Speakers have included college namesake Raymond J. Harbert, SunTrust Managing Director Biff Woodruff ’82, former Harbert College dean (currently AU Provost) Bill Hardgrave, BBVA Compass SVP Tom Genetti ’88, former AU quarterback and Campbell Wealth Management founder Randy Campbell ’84, and Delta CFO Paul Jacobson ’94. The events are free to attend for business alumni and a guest.
Each chapter has a local volunteer leadership team. In fall of 2015 a Young Alumni Council was formed to oversee the strategic direction of the program and coordinate the launch and development of the chapters. For more information on a chapter near you or leadership possibilities, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
