Join fellow Georgetown alumni and friends for the first event in our new Mission & Ministry series: a talk with Imam Hendi, head of the Muslim Chaplaincy at Georgetown. When Imam Hendi began his position at Georgetown in 1999, he was the first and only Muslim chaplain at any university in the country. In this talk, he'll discuss his work on campus as well as the principles of interfaith dialogue and how they can be integrated into life after Georgetown.

The Executive Committee of the Georgetown Club of Northern California invites you to attend a Special Business Meeting to approve proposed amendments to the Club's bylaws.

Thanks in large part to your membership and participation in Club activities and events over the last couple of years, the Georgetown University Alumni Association recently recognized our Club as Alumni Club of the Year and our President, Matt Kamenski (C'07), as Volunteer of the Year! We are channeling this momentum to make some updates to our governing document that will improve the structure of our board and give our members a stronger voice in Club affairs.

We hope you will attend and participate in the next important step in the life of our growing Club. Please feel free to e-mail us at norcalhoyas@gmail.com with any questions. We hope to see you on April 30!

Do you remember John Carroll Weekend 2011 in San Francisco? Did you know that John Carroll Weekend is coming back to the West Coast, Los Angeles, in about a month, April 16-19? As a California Hoya, this means that the best of Georgetown is coming to you. This is expected to be the largest gathering EVER of Georgetown alumni west of the Mississippi!

John Carroll Weekend will feature a variety of events, including a newly announced event with award honoree Dikembe Mutombo, formal receptions, tours, tastings, and more. Please note that there is not an overall registration fee for John Carroll Weekend, but rather you can register for each event on an a la carte basis for your convenience (some are free, some have a cost). Consider coming for the whole weekend, staying for a day, or even joining for a single event.

With spring sale fares for flights between the Bay Area and Los Angeles, this is a perfect opportunity to experience the best of Southern California with Georgetown. There are several Beverly Hills hotels with which Georgetown has negotiated special rates for the weekend, including a hotel specifically for young alumni, the Sixty Beverly Hills. Please click here for hotel information, and act soon, reservation cut-offs are approaching!

Events are filling up and others are being added, so we invite you to check out the schedule and register at http://jcw.georgetown.edu/2015/ so that you can be part of this special Georgetown tradition.

Finally, we are considering ways that our NorCal Hoyas members can coordinate travel and lodging, depending on interest. Please e-mail us (norcalhoyas@gmail.com) if you're interested in coordinating with other Bay Area Hoyas, and we can connect those who are interested!
