The dinner is being hosted by the Harvard Business School Club of Washington, D.C., but the invitation has been extended to include all D.C.-based Harvard grads. The invitation makes no mention of the club’s political affiliation, instead referring to it by its nickname, The Capitol Hill Club, and describing it only as “an elegant private club primarily serving congressmen, senators, government officials and their guests.”
E-mail inquiries to the president, secretary, membership coordinator and events coordinator of the Harvard Business School Club of Washington were not returned.
According to the invitation, former Rep. Bill Gradison (R-Ohio) will talk to the group about the implications for business of the midterm elections. Gradison served in the House from 1975 until 1993, when he resigned to take a lobbying job at the Health Insurance Association of America. Former Rep. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who will soon be sworn in to the Senate, won Gradison’s seat in a special election.
