Welcome to the MIT Club of Southwest Florida!

The MIT Club of Southwest Florida serves Massachusetts Institute of Technology alumni and alumnae in Southwest Florida extending from Naples, Marco Island, Bonita Springs, and Fort Myers to Sarasota and Bradenton.

We sponsor a wide variety of events, including lectures, seminars, social events, plant tours, and museum trips. Events are open to all MIT alumni/ae and their guests. You do not have to be a paid member to attend events, but paid members do get discounts to some events. This website is your gateway to activities and news for the Club of Southwest Florida, a way to find out what your fellow alumni are doing and stay connected.

Upcoming Meetings

Due to the seasonal nature of our membership, our club events are normally held January through April. Please check back later in the year for our list of events.

2015 Bronze Beaver Award

Our club President, Bob Gurnitz, has been chosen to receive the Bronze Beaver Award. The Bronze Beaver Award is given in recognition of distinguished service to the Institute and/or its Association of Alumni and Alumnae, and is the highest honor the Alumni Association bestows upon any of its members. Alf K. Berle ’27 and Carole (Cac) Clarke ’21 were the first recipients of the award, which was established in 1955. To date, the Bronze Beaver has been awarded to only 312 individuals.
