You and your guests are warmly invited to the Stanford Alumni Association's Annual Dinner on Tuesday, 9 December 2014. The Annual Dinner is the SAA's major event for 2014 and we hope you will be able to join us..
This year's keynote speaker is Mr. Malcolm Turnbull MP, Federal Member for Wentworth and Minister for Communications.
As is the case every year, the annual dinner is a great opportunity to catch up with Stanford alums you know and get to know others whom you may not have had the opportunity to meet. Partners and special guests are encouraged to attend. The SAA would also particularly like to welcome recent Stanford undergraduates and a special discount rate will be available to make it easier for you to attend.
The format of the evening is pre-dinner drinks and aperitifs, followed by a short AGM for the Stanford Australia Foundation and the Stanford Australia Association (15 minutes), the keynote presentation, and dinner. This leaves plenty of time to enjoy stimulating company over a drink and dinner. RSVP now to reserve a space.
