Some Upcoming Events

I wanted to update you on some events the Conference and Events Office will be working on over the next couple of weeks:

The 4th annual Simon School Convocation will be held on Thursday, September 23 at 4:30 p.m. in the University of Rochester’s Interfaith Chapel. Convocation is the official kickoff to the academic year at the Simon School of Business. Remarks will be given by Chairman Emeritus G. Robert Witmer, University President Joel Seligman, Simon School of Business Dean Mark Zupan, and Sarah Pare, Simon School Class of 2011 and President of the Graduate Business Council. Joseph Abrams ’74, co-founder of MySpace and a member of the Simon School National Council and Executive Advisory Committee, will give the Convocation Address. Simon School faculty, staff, and students are invited to a reception in the Eisenberg Rotunda in Schlegel Hall immediately following the Convocation ceremony.

Make sure you plan on attending the 2010 Benefits EXPO, held September 28-30. This event gives University of Rochester employees a chance to speak with representatives from carriers, third-party administrators, and investment companies under the University’s various benefits plans.
