To name a few, best of all the Oregon State University College of Buisness, Department of Finance is paying for most of it. Hmm, it rewards to join organizations which offer growth opportunities.

The Finance club has about 20 active members, there are 3 people going on the trip. Wow, an event like this, with that many great speakers, you’d think more people would join of course. It is only costing the people going $275, and the school covers the rest, for a 3-day workshop with presidents of banks, and all types of people, international colleges coming.

Comon, this stuff is so easy, we just got to position ourselves to where we can take advantage of opportunites. And more importantly, when they present, act.

Alot of people are going to miss out, beacuse they’d like to have fun in spring break…….

Back to work wes.
