This year, the Ninth Annual Dr. Lucille G. and L.W. Ford Distinguished Business Lecture Series will be held on Thursday, October 6th from noon to 1:30pm in the Upper Convocation Center at Ashland University. Mr. Chaim Katzman, Chairman of Gazit-Globe, will be the guest speaker. The event is free, however, guests must have a formal invitation to attend. Anyone who would like an invitation should contact Dr. Khushwant Pittenger at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 419-289-5219.
The Lecture Series was started in 2003 through the generous support of Dr. Peter Linneman and his wife, Kathleen-both graduates of Ashland University's class of 1973. The series honors and recognizes Dr. Lucille Ford as a mentor to the Linnemans and also the countless students who studied economics with her at Ashland University and is sponsored by Ashland University alumni Dr. Peter and Kathleen Linneman. The series has become a signature event for the Dauch College of Business and Economics and is coordinated by Dr. Khushwant Pittenger, Professor of Business Management & Jepson Endowed Chair.
