Nov. 4 Notable Speaker Series Geared Toward Veterans

Published: November 1, 2010

Sharing the challenges and opportunities veteran’s face when they return to the business world after the battlefield will be the focus of the next CSULB Notable Speaker Series event on Thursday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m. in Room 139-A of the College of Business Administration (CBA) Building.

Titled “Veterans in Business: Challenges and Victories,” the presentation will feature a panel discussion with successful professionals who are also veterans, including Michael O’Gorman, director of the Farmer-Veteran Coalition, and Steve Peck, president and CEO of United States Veterans Initiative. Mike Murray, director of government and external affairs for Verizon, will serve as the moderator.

The Notable Speaker Series was established by the CSULB College of Business Administration to add relevance to current students’ learning experiences and offer opportunities for professional development and intellectual engagement to alumni, staff, faculty and the community.

There is no cost to attend the event, but reservations are required. Visitors to the campus must purchase a parking permit at one of the yellow kiosk for $5 in Lot 15. Those attending the event should park in the parking structure on Merriam Way adjacent to the CBA Building and may park in the spaces marked “Employee Permit” in Lot 15 after 6 p.m. See the campus map for details.
