CBT Distinguished Speaker Series


The College of Business and Technology has joined in partnership with the Richmond Chamber of Commerce and the Richmond Rotary Club to provide a Distinguished Speaker for Eastern Kentucky University this fall. The mission of the College’s Distinguished Speaker Series is to bring leaders of business, industry, and government to the EKU campus to address students, faculty, and members of the Richmond community and surrounding areas on current topics and issues. 

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Cynthia F. Bohn, Owner of Equus Run Vineyards in Midway, Kentucky, as the College of Business and Technology 2010 Distinguished Speaker. She will visit the EKU campus on Tuesday, November 16, 2010, to speak with College faculty, staff and students.

"As part of the Distinguished Speaker Series, the College of Business and Technology invites prominent leaders to our campus to discuss current topics and issues related to their expertise.  The guest speaker has an opportunity to interact with students, faculty, and other interested participants during a public address, round table discussion, and luncheon.  We are pleased to have the Richmond Chamber of Commerce and Richmond Rotary Club join with us in providing this enrichment opportunity,"  Dr. Robert B. Rogow, Dean, EKU College of Business and Technology.
