The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the Harvard Club of Shanghai's yearly cornerstone event, bringing together members, alumni and the Club's leadership to discuss collective initiatives and vote on new board members. 

It is also a time to bring together the community in Shanghai to celebrate one more year of activities, reflect on the past and look to the future. This year we are excited to bring together a great line up of insights from a leading Harvard professor, entertainment by a Grammy Award winning Harvard alumnus, dinner and more.
