School of Management: Networks offer alumni opportunity
Interested in reconnecting with fellow School of Management alumni in your geographic area? Here are two ways to do so.
Many management alumni across the country are connecting with each other in major cities through Networks, local groups of School of Management alumni in specific cities. In partnership with UB Alumni Association regional chapters, Networks provide opportunities to widen management alumni job connections, enhance business opportunities and forge new relationships. Networks also host their own events, which may be tailored to School of Management alumni interests.
According to our database, significant numbers of management alumni reside in the following cities: Los Angeles, Boston, Atlanta, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Chicago, Dallas, Cleveland, Houston, Denver, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, Phoenix, Seattle and Charlotte. We already have an active network in the New York City area and are taking steps to form new Networks in Boston and Philadelphia, with event plans under way.
The School of Management Alumni Association is looking for some enthusiastic alumni to help spearhead networking efforts. We will provide help locating area alumni, funding local events and offering other resources (such as School of Management Dean John Thomas) to help kick off Networks. So, if you are in an area with a ³critical mass² of alumni and would like to reconnect with fellow School of Management alumni, please give us a call. Or, if you'd just like to be part of a local Network, please let us know.
For more information, please contact the School of Management Alumni Office at (716) 645-3224 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Lids Off is an electronically operated household kitchen appliance designed to assist individuals with the task of opening jars. The device, the size of a standard countertop coffeemaker, uses a motor-driven gear system and a lid-engaging unit to break the vacuum seal and unscrew the lid. The design is unique in that it features a minimal effort approach to opening jars. Lids Off is designed to significantly reduce the amount of effort expended by consumers. The appliance uses 27 of the 29 design and functional features recommended by T2 RERC.
Working with companies around the world, the T2 RERC has a mission: to commercialize advanced technologies and innovative prototypes that increase the functional capabilities of people with disabilities and the elderly.
