SVC Gets BYU Management Society Student Chapter (Student Chapter Formed in Southern Virginia) Exchange Magazine 1Mar00 D3

BUENA VISTA, VIRGINIA -- A new student chapter of the BYU Management Society has been formed at Southern Virginia College, the Virginia college that espouses LDS values in its management and student conduct. The formation of the student chapter was approved last October by the Blue Ridge Chapter, the closest chapter to Buena Vista, Virginia where the college resides.

The chapter is meant to enhance the professional lives of SVC students through education, leadership and professional opportunities provided by the BYU Management Society. The chapter has already brought some high-profile speakers to SVC, including BYU Law Professor Richard G. Wilkins, founder of BYU's World Family Policy Center and UN activist for families. Russell S. Tompkins, COO/managing director of Osprey Partners Investment Management, and Michael J. Glauser, PhD, author of The Business of Heart, have also spoken to the chapter.

The chapter also recently sponsored a trip to an MBA forum in Washington D.C. and several members attended an e-commerce conference in New York City. SVC business professor Todd Brotherson serves as chapter advisor, which already has a full slate of student officers, including chapter president Darrell Manning, director of programs Scott McKeon, director of corporate relations Harvey Scott, and public relations director Alison Bennion.
