The University of Chicago Women's Business Group Nonprofit Event (11/18/04)

Good morning --

Great to see many of you yesterday at The University of Chicago Women's Business Group's dynamic nonprofit event. Keynote speaker Susan Crown, President, Arie and Ida Crown Memorial Foundation, gave a wonderful talk and one of the points she made that I remember the most is to encourage people -- whether working at a for profit or nonprofit enterprise -- to "assign yourself." In other words, don't wait for things to happen -- make things happen. I could not agree more.

In addition to Susan's keynote, there were dozens of nonprofits represented along with nearly 300 people in attendance. Networking was fabulous and the food scrumptious. Support for this event was generously provided by lead sponsor Hewitt Associates and other important organizations, including Financial Women's Association, Chicago GSB Club and the Women Presidents' Organization (WPO).

The Women Presidents' Organization looks forward to working with the UCWBG again on its 5th Annual Networking Event in 2005.

Have a great day,
