The Board of Fellows, established in 1972, sees its mission to serve as “goodwill ambassadors” within the community, as well as to provide financial and other support to the University of Tampa.
Brian Smith, LCG Managing Partner and the Board of Fellows Treasurer and Chair-Elect, along with Walt Bromfield, the Board of Fellows 15-16 Chair; Gary Grant, the Vice President of Development and University Relations; and Dr. Ronald Vaughn, President of the University of Tampa, proudly present a check to the University of Tampa.
The Board of Fellows grossed over $400,000 this year through their membership dues, annual fund contribution, event revenues and sponsorships.
Made up of over 150 business leaders and professionals, the Fellows increase the University’s visibility through special events and outreach, and raise funds for scholarships. Through their activities, members of the Board of Fellows also find rewarding opportunities to network with peers who share their belief in the value of higher education.
About the Business Network Symposia
Held three times per year (October, January and April), the Business Network Symposium (BNS) is a complimentary and informative morning for the Tampa Bay business community and The University of Tampa students. Each BNS program will present three CEOs of local businesses. These businesses are well known, but changing; new and emerging; or new to the Tampa Bay area. The CEOs of these firms will be given the opportunity to share their business story – accomplishments, lessons learned and future plans – with the local community.
The 2015-2016 Business Network Symposia are sponsored by LCG Advisors and hosted by The University of Tampa Board of Fellows.
Each speaker will have 10-15 minutes, and the event will conclude with a Q-and-A session. This symposium is open to the public and has complimentary admission.
