    Good morning,

    September's Hot Topic Call: Will be September 11, 2020 (This was moved due to Labor Day weekend). The focus will be on corporate, foundation, grant, gift, contracts....oh my  (please add your corporate or non-standard templates). We are going to dive deep into the complexities of these types of agreements, who you should partner with on-campus, what resources people have developed and training.

    I am looking for panelists volunteers to discuss naming policies and removals, please contact me if you are interested.
