A Letter from The President
Dear DBC Community,
I’m honored to serve as the 2019 President of the Dallas Business Club and look forward to an exciting year of programming. Founded in 2006, the DBC is an alliance of 27 MBA alumni chapters in the DFW area, representing an estimated 30,000 alumni in total. Our objective is to provide opportunities for networking, professional development, and continuing education to engage our growing MBA community.
The DBC is well known for its signature events, including an annual state of the economy address delivered by the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, a Welcome to Dallas celebration for MBA summer interns, speed networking events, monthly happy hours, a holiday party, and various educational programming throughout the year. We also provide access to spectacular events hosted by our member school alumni groups, many of which offer discounted pricing to DBC members.
Our website, email communications, and social media channels will keep you up to date on some fantastic MBA-focused activities and ways to grow your network. As an inclusive organization, we welcome alumni from MBA programs that are not official member schools and those who are currently pursuing or considering an MBA to attend any of our events.
The DBC’s Board of Directors is comprised of two representatives from each of the 27 member schools who meet quarterly to guide the strategy of our club. If you are interested in filling an open board position or having your local alumni chapter apply to be an official member school of the DBC, feel free to reach out to President@DallasBusinessClub.com for more information. We’re always seeking volunteers to help with event planning, marketing, and corporate sponsorship, so please let us know if you would like to join one of those committees to get more involved with the DBC.
Lastly, we benefit from the generous support of our Corporate Sponsors and offer a variety of ways to connect with our member base. Please contact Sponsorship@DallasBusinessClub.com if your company is interested in becoming a DBC sponsor.
Being a member of the DBC has allowed me to expand my social and professional network and has provided me with many opportunities for personal and professional growth. I look forward to helping shape the next chapter of the club’s journey and hope to see you at an upcoming event!
