A chance to volunteer via CompassProBono.
2nd Annual Summer Brunch, July 24.

Thanks to the 60+ alumni for coming out to greet the dean during his first trip to Chicago.  His message was clear, he wants Darden atop the MBA leader boards.  Our next event is July 24 for the 2nd annual summer brunch where alumni open their home to host as we welcome to Chicago the interns and recent grads.  Many of you also volunteer and I recently met with the board chair of CompassProBono for new opportunities via their MBA focused program that matches mental horsepower and experience with local non-profits.  Plus, a few of us changed companies and received promotions in the latest Movers & Shakers.  See you at brunch !!

Sunday July 24 : Summer Brunch
Thank you D'14s Michael Humenanski, Allison Kelly and Amanda Middlebrooks for hosting this year's summer brunch Sunday July 14, 10:00 am (1749 N Wells St. #2010).  Last year this was 'potluck' style so bring a favorite dish if you like but we'll plan food based on RSVPs via Darden's forthcoming invitation (email me if you want to bring a dish).

COMING SOON : Raymond Lambert
Would you leave your successful Investment Banking career to launch a startup in an industry you have no experience?  What if your startup helped the early careers of comedian Chris Rock, Oscar winner Jamie Foxx, the tv/radio host of everything Steve Harvey, the late Bernie Mac, the great Dave Chappelle, and dozens more...  Then a documentary was made about you that earned great acclaim.  Then you become a producer and your latest movie about Maya Angelou was just selected for the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.  Sounds crazy but taking that risk is what D'87 Raymond Lambert did and he is sharing his behind the scenes entrepreneurial story with our Darden Chicago alumni.  Stay tuned as we're working on event details but you can order Raymond's book All Jokes Aside  or rent the documentary Phunny Business from Amazon... or, you can stay in that safe banking job.
