Weekly News & Agenda for Tuesday, 4/8/14


0700-0730: Introductions & Assistance

During introductions, tell us what's new for you lately, and any networking needs we might be able to help you with.  The grad network works!

0730-0800:  Speaker

Putting myself on the calendar this time (Joe Paniccia - USMA '84).  I'll lead a discussion on index mutual funds, based on several recent articles that challenge the wisdom of traditional cap-weighted indexing.  I am not a financial services professional -- just an investor like the rest of us, who finds some fascination with the topic.



4/8/14 (this week):  Joe Paniccia - see above. 
4/15/14:  TBD.

If you'd like to schedule a speaker for 4/15 or any upcoming Tuesday, please send a note to George Jenkins (USNA '74) at  Remember that speakers need not be just from outside our group.  You could lead a discusion yourself on a topic of your choosing.


Our sister group in Colorado Springs (Service Academy BizNet - Pike's Peak Region) will have a special speaker this week:  General Irv Rokke, former Dean of USAFA.  The meeting is at 0700-0800 on Wednesday, April 9, at East Coast Grill on South Tejon in Colorado Springs, across the street from Quinn's.

Pike's Peak BizNet has the same mission, format, and approach as our Denver BizNet group.  They meet every Wednesday, 0700-0800.  For many years their venue had been The Perk, on S. Tejon, but due to a recent fire in that building they're using a different establishment for now, as indicated above.

If any Denver Biznetters can make it fit with your schedule, let's support our fellow grads in the Springs with a good turnout for General Rokke's talk on Wednesday. 


Have a great week.

Joe Paniccia (USMA '84)
