Eagle Business Book Club

Join the newly formed Eagle Business Book Club on Friday, November 11 at 7:30 a.m. in the Minor Board Room of the Jepson Alumni Executive Center.

The club was formed to give UMW faculty and staff an opportunity to read books that pertain to our work environment—our goal is to learn and share best practices in the workplace!  To that end, each month we will read a different ‘business book’ and then discuss it.

The first book selected is a classic.  Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” written in 1936, is one of the most widely read and impactful books worldwide.  Pick up a copy, read it and join us on November 11 for a discussion on how we can use Carnegie’s ideas at UMW.

The Eagle Book Club Steering Committee members are Rosemary Arneson, Erma Baker, Donna Mejia, Fred Pierce, Lynne Richardson, Doug Searcy and Justin Webb.  If you have specific questions, please contact a member of the Steering Committee.  And we hope to see you on November 11th.  Oh, and it’s BYOC (Bring Your Own Coffee)!

Lynne Richardson, Dean, College of Business

  1. I will be there in spirit. Love that Dale Carnegie, but can’t make something that early 🙁

  2. What’s the next book on the group’s reading list?
