Annual Class Dinner

Friday, October 27, 2023 | Cocktails starting at 6:15 PM

The Class of 1965 Dinner will be held on this date at the Yale Club in New York City. The cost of the dinner is $125 per person. Our speaker this year will be our own David Hawkins, who is our resident expert in matters of Climate Change. David describes his presentation this year as follows:

Climate Change: where do we go from here?

“A review of developments over the past several years—mounting harms, climate damage lawsuits, Inflation Reduction Act, EPA power plant carbon pollution standards, and the role of controversial approaches (carbon capture, CO2 removal, solar radiation manipulation).”

Please click here to register. All registrations must be completed online using this link or by calling the YAA at (203) 432-2110.

If you want to stay at the Yale Club, please call them directly at (212) 661-2070. We have a small block of rooms reserved for classmates, but they will not be held indefinitely.

A meeting of the Class Council will be held at 5:00 p.m. in the Council Room.

Warmest Regards,

David Hawkins has just been just elected to the AAAS! This extraordinary honor is especially significant because as a lawyer, not a formally credentialed scientist, Dave’s unique talents are being recognized — the ability to interpret complex scientific findings in ways that command trust from the scientific community, and then to intelligibly communicate their implications to national and international policymakers and to the general public.

About the Y65 Zoom Hour Series
