Weekly News and Agenda for Tuesday 3/22/11


0700-0800: OPEN FORUM

The open forum is a prime opportunity to get to know your fellow grads, exchange networking information, disseminate business leads, enhance your job search, and enjoy the camaraderie of in-person discussion on topics of interest.

With no speaker scheduled this week, we'll expand the roundtable introductions to provide plenty of time to talk about what's happening in your world, with particular focus on any of your networking needs.

We hope you'll join us this coming Tuesday morning, or any Tuesday when you have the chance to stop by. Grab some coffee (we meet inside the hotel's coffee shop) and enjoy some great discussion and valuable networking.


3/29/11: We have a speaker tentatively scheduled for this date, pending confirmation. He's a recruiter with a major IT/Business contracting company, looking for candidates to place with their client companies.

As for April and beyond, our speaker schedule is currently open. If you have a speaker in mind, or would like to lead a discussion yourself, just let me know and we'll be glad to put you on the calendar for whichever Tuesday works best for you.


As mentioned in last week's note, Biznet member Terence Andre (USAFA '87) has had a relapse of leukemia and will be undergoing a marrow transplant soon. Fortunately his sister is a 100% match, so we hope for the best. Last week Terence was looking for short-term housing options in Aurora near the Fitzsimmons campus during his treatment. Many of you responded, and now Terrence and family have the short-term housing pretty well settled. Thank you so much - another example of grads helping grads. The network works!

There's an additional way you can help though. Rod Ford (Terence's colleague) writes as follows:

Many of you have already been coming forward with great ideas for how to help Terence and his family. Based on a lot of input from folks around TiER1, I have put together a donate site at If you’d like to make a donation to help Terence and his family cover some of their costs you can make a donation at

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask me.

Best Regards,

Please join the CU Veterans Alumni Association and the CU Student Veterans Association for a happy hour event on Tuesday, March 29, 2011, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at Randolph's Restaurant/Bar in the Warwick Hotel, at 1776 Grant St in downtown Denver. This is a great opportunity get to catch up with fellow CU veteran alumni, and get to know some of the student veterans currently attending CU.

There is no cost to register for this event, but everyone is on their own for drinks. Please RSVP to me at if you can make it, so we know about how many people to expect. I hope to see you all there.

Also, please check out our group as an additional way to keep in touch with fellow veterans from CU.

If any of you have any questions about this event, please feel free to give me call or send me an email.
