Last fall, over eighty HBS alumni and nonprofit leaders gathered in Menlo Park, California, to hear HBS senior lecturer Reynold Levy discuss the relationship between nonprofit CEOs and their boards. Levy, himself a CEO of the New York City; based International Rescue Committee, spoke candidly about his experiences with his board and about critical issues relating to governing nonprofit organizations today.

The event was hosted by the HBS Community Partners, a group established by the HBS Association of Northern California in 1986 to give local alumni a chance to channel their interests and skills into community service. Since that time, more than 400 HBS alumni have volunteered business consulting assistance to over 150 nonprofit organizations throughout the Bay Area, including museums, symphonies, and social service and community development agencies.

The gathering also served as an occasion to honor Claudia Stern (MBA '85) with the Jim Stocker Volunteer Award for Excellence. Each year this distinction is presented to an HBS graduate who has made significant contributions to Community Partners and its clients. Stern was singled out for her work as a volunteer as well as for her ten years of service on the Community Partners steering committee.
