Thursday Morning Roundtable Announces September Guest List in New Space
The Office of Community Engagement announces its September lineup of guests for its weekly Thursday Morning Roundtable (TMR). The weekly civic education program brings in speakers to discuss current topics and issues in the Central New York (CNY) community. Meetings are held every Thursday morning from 8 to 9 a.m. in the Nancy Cantor Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse. Now, TMR will be held on ground floor of the Warehouse in the Office of Community Engagement’s new community room.
“We are excited to have a more accessible and visible space in the community, demonstrating the University’s commitment to community groups,” says Emily Winiecki, community engagement coordinator. “And there’s no better way to kick-off the new space than our longstanding, popular Thursday Morning Roundtable series.”
September TMRs will have the following topics and guests:
Sept. 12, Renewable Energy
Chris Carrick, program manager for energy management at the CNY Regional Planning and Development Board, and Lindsey Speer, campaign manager for the Alliance for a Green Economy, will speak about renewable energy. This TMR topic is presented in partnership with FOCUS Greater Syracuse.
Sept. 19, The Good Life
Annette Peters, vice president of marketing at Syracuse Media Group, and Ben Sio, chief of staff at CenterState CEO, will speak about the new branding initiative for CNY as a great place to live, work and raise a family.
Sept. 26, New York State Senate 53rd District
New York State Sen. Rachel May, representing the 53rd Senate District, will present on her first year in office and her vision for the future.
Before and after the program, there is time for coffee and networking. TMR is free and open to the public. Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) is available every week. A recording of the TMR conversation airs on WCNY-FM radio on Sundays at 8 p.m.
The guests and topics are chosen by the TMR Advisory Committee, which is made up of 10 CNY community members and managed by Emily Winiecki, community engagement coordinator in the Office of Community Engagement. Questions or comments regarding TMR can be emailed to Winiecki.
