The Smith Soc Chicago Professional Chapter held its Summer Reception on Thursday July 21. The chapter welcomed  Samara Klar, PhD, a political science professor from the University of Arizona. Dr. Klar studies independent voters - why they think and vote the way they do. She held an informal conversation about the current election season. Given the historic nature of the 2016 election cycle, independent voters are primed to play a major role in the outcome.

The Boston Professional Chapter Summer Reception was held on Tuesday, July 12. The program featured a panel on Tech and Venture Capital - sectors that are undergoing growth and are also a part of the Boston-area business landscape.

The panelists included both established and rising leaders in both sectors: Robert White of Bain Capital and Harvard Business School; Christina Bechhold of Empire Angels; and John Ho of AnzuPartners. The panel was moderated by Josh Lerner, a Professor at Harvard Business School.

Speaking with the Chicago Professional Chapter on Monday, April 25, and a joint meeting of our Booth and Kellogg chapters on Tuesday, April 26, Olsen led discussions about the issues of the 2016 election, and put the debates and battles over both parties' nomination in the context of past contests.

On April 18th, Smith Soc's Wake Forest University chapter hosted Scott Winship for a social hour to celebrate the end of the academic year. The Smith Soc members at Wake closed out a year in which their chapter earned "Comeback Chapter of the Year" at the National Meeting.
