OPConnect Series for Alumni
Spring is typically a time when our alumni office takes Penn Charter on the road by hosting regional receptions for our OPCs. This year, because we can't travel, Penn Charter is developing new ways of strengthening our community – and you can participate no matter where you live.
Over the next few weeks, our OPConnect series will offer a virtual Meeting for Worship and industry networking events on Zoom, plus social media interactions just for you! The schedule appears below. Join Head of School Darryl J. Ford for as many of these events as you have time and interest. Register for each event, and we will send you a link to the Zoom meeting.
