                                  Dear Prospective Member,

We are delighted that you are interested in the activities of the Brandeis National Committee (BNC), Santa Clara Valley Chapter.

BNC offers many membership benefits with a rich variety of educational and cultural opportunities, the most important of which are study groups, some of which are created exclusively for BNC by members of the Brandeis University faculty. You will share these benefits with like-minded individuals who have a love forlearning and a commitment to higher education.

There is something for everyone in the Brandeis National Committee, not the least of which is the knowledge that you are helping the best of today's young scholars. Through the efforts of tens of thousands of members across the country, BNC has helped to distinguish Brandeis University among the top tier of universities. Since its founding in 1948, BNC has raised money to help create an outstanding library system, support research, and extend advanced educational technology for the students and faculty of Brandeis.
