Frequently Asked Questions...
Who can join the Harvard Business School Club of Dallas?
Membership is open to all. You are not required to be a graduate of HBS to join; however, some benefits such as the HBS Directory and HBS Job Bank are available only to graduates and only when using a LEFA login.
What is a LEFA?
LEFA stands for Lifelong E-mail Forwarding Address. You will need your LEFA and password to access certain member-only features of the both the HBS Club of Dallas and the HBS Alumni sites. Your LEFA is assigned to you and serviced as a benefit to HBS alumni. Your LEFA is derived from a combination of the first letter of your first name, your last name, and your graduating HBS program. For example:
Jane Doe, MBA '07, would be: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your LEFA serves two purposes:
E-mail Forwarding System
As an e-mail forwarding address, LEFAs make it easier for alumni around the world to connect to each other via e-mail. Please understand that your LEFA is a forwarding address for e-mail, not an actual e-mail address. An e-mail sent to your LEFA is forwarded by the LEFA servers to a personal e-mail address that you designate. The LEFA is not a traditional e-mail account that you might check via the Web or via a POP server.
HBS Alumni Website Username
Your LEFA, coupled with your password, will give you online access to the HBS Alumni Directory, Alumni Job Bank, Class Notes, HBS Videotools, and other alumni benefits.
For more information, visit the HBS Alumni Website LEFA information page.

How do I log in to the HBS Club of Dallas website?
