Hey classmates! There’s only 8 months to go before our 30th Reunion, so to start getting psyched for June 7-10, 2018, our class is offering a series of four webinars. Participate in any of the webinars, and you will be invited to join us on campus for a final, unforgettable lecture – in person.  Those who join our webinars will receive a small token of appreciation for maintaining your long lasting ties with our class and with Cornell.

Please join our classmates Linda, Steve, Mike and Smoke for a discussion about their fascinating career arcs, their fields, and the value that maintaining their longtime Cornell connections has brought them over the nearly 30(?!) years since we’ve graduated. From art to law, venture capital to winemaking, these four alumni represent just a few of the fascinating life stories our classmates have crafted following our graduation.

The conversation will be moderated by our class co-president, Howard Greenstein ‘88, Associate Executive Director, Manny Cantor Center and Adjunct Lecturer at Columbia University. Read up on our speakers here.

Tune in on November 9 at 8:00 p.m. EDT to gain from the business and life wisdom of four very different classmates.

This virtual discussion will be recorded and available for playback. Please register in advance to watch live or to receive the recording via email.

We look forward to reviewing your specific questions for Linda, Steve, Mike and Smoke in advance of the webinar. You can submit your questions via this form.

Don’t wait, register today!
