TU establishes Executive Club to promote alumni’s business and leadership achievements
TOWSON, Md. (Jan. 17, 2006)—Towson University President Robert L. Caret announces the establishment of the Towson University Executive Club, a select organization for business executives who are also Towson alumni. The first of its kind in Maryland’s higher education community, the Executive Club was developed under the guidance of Dr. James P. Clements, TU vice president for Economic and Community Outreach, in partnership with a group of distinguished alumni.
Meeting several times a year in social settings, Executive Club members will reap benefits by connecting with other business executives, exchanging business strategies and sharing professional experiences.
“When I am out in the business community I am constantly amazed as to the extent that Towson University graduates have risen to the top or are owners of companies,” says Scott Hargest, president, Corporate Printing Solutions, and a founding member of the Executive Club. “I think the time has come for these executives to be recognized and brought together so they can share their experiences with peers in a relaxed club-like atmosphere.”
You may be eligible to join the Executive Club if you are a Towson University graduate who has achieved great leadership and business success, and have demonstrated business leadership (examples include: president, CEO, vice president, government leader, entrepreneur, etc). Applications for membership are accepted throughout the year. The membership committee expects to evaluate applications during March and notify successful petitioners in April.
