LSE alum event
Greetings Fellow Alums:
RECENT EVENTS IN THE LAND OF ETERNAL SUNSHINE
This summer we had some fantastic LSE alum events here in Los Angeles.
In late May, we were hosted for an evening at the residence of the Japanese Consul General. A Japanese member of parliament flew in to address us. We enjoyed sushi from the consul's in-house chef.
In July, we hosted a panel of consuls general at Northern Trust discussing "International Responses to the Obama Revoloution". Thank you Laura Porter, VP at Northern Trust for permitting us to use the beautiful conference facilities at Northern Trust.
In August, Alum Seth Weisberg and Nicola Bird graciously opened their lovely home to us for our annual Bon Voyage party. This is the second time that Seth and Nicola have been kind enough to host a party for LSE alums at their home. We are most grateful to them. Each year we host the new incoming class of LSE students and their families before the big trip to London. This year we were honored to be in the presence of the British Consul General and the Turkish Consul General together with an attache of the South African consulate. The British Consul General Dame Barbara Hayes gave a rousing address. We are grateful to Lloyds/TSB bank for sponsoring the event.
Our monthly drinks mixers will recommence after a summer hiatus. Please join us September 17 at 7pm in downtown Los Angeles. We will meet at the Weiland Brewery Underground at 505 S Flower St. (This is NOT the Weiland Brewery in J-town) They validate for inexpensive parking inside the building. Arrive just before 7pm to get their happy hour prices. Here is the link to details on the aflse.org site:

Please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE VOLUNTEER (IF ONLY A LITTLE)
Please think about what YOU can do to help create the type of alum group you want.
Particularly we would appreciate some volunteers to arrange monthly drinks mixers in the upcoming months. This would take maybe 15 minutes of your time. You would then have a mixer in a place convenient to you.
Does anyone have access to a nice venue for the annual holiday tea (tea here is used in the broadest sense, which includes alcohol)? Does anyone have a good idea for where to have the annual holiday tea which you would like to realise? Please let us know.
We hope you had a good summer. These are challenging times for many people. The LSE alum group is here to support you. We have a warm and friendly crowd of all ages and most of our events are free (just pay for your own drink). Please join us.
Mansi and Elizabeth
