Dear College of Business Alumna:

It is my sincere pleasure to invite you to participate in the fourth annual Crocker Program for Emerging Business Leaders Reception. This exclusive event will be held at The Peninsula Hotel Chicago on Wednesday evening, February 18, 2015. Attendance is comprised of successful College of Business alumnae, such as yourself, who can provide students with the opportunity to learn how to network with women business leaders, and how to establish mentoring ties in a professional context.

The Crocker Program for Emerging Business Leaders was established by Cindy Crocker (Marketing, `80) as a way to provide current NIU College of Business female students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills through networking with College of Business alumnae business executives. The format entails a cocktail reception, a one-half hour program and discussion, followed by a networking reception.

Refreshments and hors d`oeuvres will be served
6:30 - 7:00 p.m.Business Leader Panel Discussion

Students will request and exchange business cards with alumnae executives during the networking portions of this event, so please be sure to bring your business cards. We expect 50 or more students to participate.

I hope you can join us and share in this unique opportunity. Your participation will make a difference in the lives and future of our students.

Please RSVP by January 23 to: businessalumni@niu.edu or call Belinda Waite at (815) 753-1433. I am so looking forward to seeing you for this wonderful evening!
