USA Tour – September 2019

Eight days, six US cities and over 200 alumni engaged in a series of extraordinary alumni events across the country - San Francisco, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, New York and Boston.

From stunning views over the Capitol building from a rooftop terrace in DC courtesy of Jones Day and all-round top gentleman Charles Kotuby, to a friendly and fun gathering in Cavanaugh Headhouse in Philly. From an informal and fun brunch in Chicago, to a sunset view of the Statue of Liberty courtesy of Hughes, Hubbard and Reed and Durham legend John Fellas. And finally, a 49th floor breath-taking view over Boston at the new Ropes & Gray facility courtesy of Durham Law School’s amazing alumni community member Phil Sanderson.

It was a truly special trip and couldn’t have happened without the support of our Alumni Ambassadors in the US – so many thanks again to you all. And thank you to all of those who came out to see us – it is always lovely to meet with alumni everywhere and share in our Durham pride!

Next is a variety of Dunelm Days events across the world and our NY Gala in December.
