WE AT THE GSB continue to develop useful digital alumni information services that make it easy for our graduates to keep in touch with the school and each other. We are delighted to announce the debut of something many of you have been clamoring for–an online alumni directory. The GSB Connection Manager database now is available through the GSB alumni web site. Graduates can dial in to search for their classmates or other alumni in their region or industry. This means that you no longer you no longer have to request a list of networking contacts and wait for it to arrive; you can readily access the information yourself. (Of course, we can still print you a list if you’d prefer.)

This database includes workplace contact information only. To use this service you must have a complimentary Email 4 Life password. If you do not yet have this or have other questions about the new Contact Manager, please contact us at alumni@gsb.uchicago.edu or fax your inquiry to (773) 702-0520.

We can't provide you with the meaning to life but we now have available a guide to Email 4 Life. If you would like step-by-step instructions on how to access and use this valuable service or a better understanding of how it can help you, contact alumni@gsb.uchicago.edu or call Karen Holland at (773) 702-0520 to receive your copy.

All of you with Email 4 Life addresses have been receiving periodic information packets that pull together the latest information on career enhancement and continuation trends, tips, and experiences of alumni and part time students from the Office to Advance Career and Corporate Alliances. We hope you've enjoyed them and welcome your feedback on the information.

Throughout 1998 and 1999, a number of password protected online services will debut. Your Email 4 Life account and password will allow you to access these services. If you haven't already, sign up soon!

BUSINESS FORECASTS 1998
Alumni are flocking to an ever-growing list of Business Forecast events organized by GSB clubs. In addition to the venerable luncheons held in Chicago and New York for decades, alumni clubs in Houston, Orange County, Philadelphia, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Brussels drew record numbers of attendants to their forecasts. GSB faculty members Bob Aliber, John Huizinga and Marvin Zonis joined GSB alumni such as Joel Stern, ’64, and Chuck Clough, ’66, to present their economic predictions for 1998. The Orange County club attracted an amazing 468 attendees while more than 400 alumni and friends heard the Houston forecast. Our thanks to the GSB Club organizers for the hard work and dedication devoted to these efforts.

We would like to welcome Amy Peiken Palmer to the GSB Office of Alumni Relations. Amy will be taking over from Sheri Fox as associate director of events and special projects.
