The HKS DC Alumni Council is a body of 15 alumni who act on behalf of the 9,000+ HKS alumni who reside or work in the DC metropolitan area. Each year a number of new councilors are elected by the HKS community in DC.
Special thanks to this year’s HKS DC Election Committee — Peter Bacon, Ben Goldsmith, Nina Hernandez and David Rosenberg— for their help in running a fair and transparent election (and keeping the Russians out). Additional thanks to HKSDC Communications VP Barbara Zadina for posting the election results, as well as numerous voting reminders, which no doubt accounted for our record voter turnout.
