Thank you all who came to the Fall 2014 orientation on Wednesday, September 10. Dean Steele, Dr. Ivanov, Dr. Pagani, and the BIA officers are impressed by the number of ambitious students whom show interest in the financial sector. This will be a great semester full of learning, growing, and networking.
As explained at orientation, every Wednesday will be a presentation from outstanding financial institutions and banks. This Wednesday, September 17th, we will be hosting Private Ocean, a wealth management firm based in Marin County. Their Founder/Chairman, Richard Stone, will be in attendance, so come ready. If you have questions about, or want to learn more about wealth management- this presentation is for YOU!
Lastly, if you still need to sign up to become a member we will be accepting payments for the next two meetings. Membership for one semester is $35 and for a full year $45. All payments can be made by cash or check (made out to the Banking and Investment Association).
See you on Wednesday!
