Strengthen your Brand, Make your network more effective: Volunteer with WCNJ

Club Committees - A Path to Leadership

By actively participating in club activities you can deepen your connections, strengthen your network and forge new relationships with Wharton alumni. Club volunteers have: found new business, show-cased their professional capabilities, and discovered new career and social opportunities as they demonstrate and polish their leadership skills by working on Club initiatives.

But, many wonder how they can get involved and how much of a commitment it is. We did too! That is why we developed WCNJ’s Paths to Leadership – a series of incremental steps you can take to get involved, stay involved and then guide the future of the club through leadership.

So, if you are a Wharton or Penn alum who would like to be a part of the future of the Wharton Club of NJ, We want to hear from you!
