Monmouth Associates, Great Decisions programs continue Feb. 15-16

Two ongoing series at Monmouth College will continue Feb. 15-16.

The Great Decisions discussion series will be held at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 15 in the Moot Board Room (Room 276) of the College’s Center for Science and Business. Monmouth College anthropology professor Petra Kuppinger will introduce the topic “Saudi Arabia in Transition.” Free and open to the public, the program will include an hour-long group discussion following her remarks.

On Feb. 16, the next meeting of Monmouth Associates will be held at noon in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room of Stockdale Center.

The Associates program will feature Paul Schuytema, director of economic and community development for the City of Monmouth, discussing the new Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities business education program for Monmouth-Roseville High School and United High School juniors and seniors.

Monmouth College is a founding sponsor of the business program, which aims to teach high school students how to think like business owners.

Monmouth College trustee Jack Schultz of Effingham, Ill., was on the ground floor of CEO. The CEO of Agracel Inc., Schultz was the community leader that a high school student wanted to meet to learn more about business.

“The CEO program is one of the most transformative programs I’ve seen for rural communities, connecting young people directly with local business and community leaders,” said Schultz, who has been a member of the Monmouth board since 2009.

There is a $9 charge for lunch at Monmouth Associates. Lunch reservations can be made by phone at 309-457-2231 by Feb. 14 or by email.

A free shuttle van transports passengers from two locations to every Associates luncheon. The van stops at the northeast quadrant of the Public Square at 11:45 a.m. and at the Faith United Presbyterian Church parking lot at 11:50 a.m. It returns to both locations immediately following the program. Shuttle reservations can be made also by calling 309-457-2231.

Parking is available along North Ninth Street and in the parking lot near the Stockdale Center.

Get Involved in CEO

The manner in which the CEO program is funded is critical to its success and sustainability. All funds raised are used exclusively for the Warren County CEO program. To participate, a 3-year $1000 per year commitment is required. Business Partner Investors commitments of time and energy are also critical to the program's success. Contributions may be tax deductible, as our organization is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.

When we are not touring local businesses, we need a place to host the class. During that time, the 18 CEO students and their Facilitator would meet at your site where they would also have guest speakers and guests from the community attend. Hosting requires a facility with internet access and adequately accommodates up to 23 people.

We are looking for people to share real-life stories about the concepts of running a business, from strategic thinking, product development to marketing, and cash flow management. Also, sharing your personal successes and failures are what recent classes have enjoyed the most.

If you are interested in participating in any of the above programs, use our contact form to send us a message
