The Right Person in the Right Job

Exact location of this event is to be determined.

We all want to be that person—and to be surrounded by these people. Join us for a dialogue with colleagues who have great stories and practical advice to share. Featured speakers include Megan O. Spelman (President, William Spelman Executive Search), Montique Cotton Kelly (Associate Vice President for Alumni Relations, UConn Foundation), and Teresa Johnston (Director of Human Resources, UConn Foundation). After the session, continue the conversation during a social hour with the panelists and Connecticut CASE District I colleagues.
