Alumni Networking in Des Moines - Professional Presence

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Dos Rios Cantina and Tequila Lounge
316 Court Avenue, Des Moines
11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. (CDT)

In the first seven seconds of meeting someone, you are judged and labeled about 11 times. In the first 30 seconds of a presentation, audience members decide if they like you and if they think you're credible. It's possible to manage these outcomes, says Stephanie Salasek, senior associate director of admissions at Iowa State University, who will discuss the importance that professional image plays at any stage of your career—and give you advice on how to improve your skills.

$13 for UIAA members, $15 for nonmembers. Lunch is included.
Register by noon on Friday, Oct. 24.

Alumni Networking in Des Moines - Seeking Financial Independence: Competing Obligations

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Dos Rios Cantina and Tequila Lounge
316 Court Avenue, Des Moines
11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. (CST)

Every budget requires juggling financial priorities while setting both long and short-term goals—should you save for your own future or your children's education? Put money in an emergency fund or your 401(k)? Pay down debt or save for retirement? While anyone can save for multiple goals, doing so successfully means setting the right priorities and creating a plan. Hear Ronald Barnes and Todd Edwards from Merrill Lynch tell you how to do this through budgeting, investing, and developing a feasible road map.

$13 for UIAA members, $15 for nonmembers. Lunch is included.
Register noon on Wednesday, Nov. 5.
