Loretta Evans
President Nominee:

Though I have only been involved with the club since January of this year, I have been highly impressed by the service and dedication Loretta has exhibited.She designed (and now manages) the club website and she has repeatedly taken the initiative in setting up events, most recently the general meeting we will be attending on September 23rd. She also arranged to have the Dean of the School of Engineering speak when he was in China earlier this year. I also understand she has been involved in an entrepreneurial venture focused on women graduates of Penn
I have often spoken with Loretta about ways of increasing the profile of the Club.In those discussions she has always exhibited a strategic approach that is also pragmatic.She works across constituencies well and does not hesitate to complete tasks herself.
Finally, she is a graduate of a program that links two schools at Penn:Wharton and SEAS.That linkage should help coordinate activities between the Penn Club of Beijing and the various Wharton clubs.
