Dear Wharton Alumni and Friends,

It is my pleasure to invite you to attend the Wharton Global Alumni Forum in Jakarta on June 22-23, 2012.  This is the Wharton School’s first-ever Forum to be held in Indonesia, and it is a great privilege to continue to expand the School’s global exposure as we seek to make the Global Alumni Forums accessible to a broad range of our alumni and friends around the world.


Indonesia has a rapidly growing economy, and we are pleased to invite alumni and friends to Jakarta, which is quickly becoming one of the great commercial centers of the world.  Wharton is proud to enhance its presence across the globe by hosting this year’s Forum in such an important location.  The Forum in Jakarta will be the 42nd in the series, which started in 1993. 


With the world’s preeminent business leaders to serve as panelists and keynote speakers, this year’s Forum will continue our long-established tradition of innovation and excellence.  The Forum promises to be an intellectually stimulating event, with pioneering and rewarding discourse, as well as unmatched opportunities to network with alumni from around the world.


On behalf of the Wharton School, we would be pleased if you could join us at the Forum in Jakarta.  I will be there personally, heading up a delegation of outstanding Wharton faculty.  


I look forward to seeing you there, to enhancing your bond with the Wharton alumni community, and to celebrating the School’s continued mission of global development.
