Week 8- TSG Bulletin

There’s been a lot going on this week! And they affect all of us.

First, in view of the recent burglaries, please ensure that you lock your doors and windows when you leave your dorm rooms. We will address this issue further in tomorrow’s TSG Board meeting (LH53 @1pm).
Second, surely you have already received the great news that Thunderbird has finally selected a very well-qualified president: Dr. Larry Penley. We can expect to hear from him soon. And of course, we will miss Ambassador Barbara Barrett.

Lastly, Hurricane Sandy has caused major damage in the north east. We at TSG would like to extend our concern to you and your loved ones who are out there now. We ask you for support at this Saturday’s Americas Regional Night, where we will have a table to collect donations. The money raised goes to the American Red Cross, as it responds with humanitarian relief (http://rdcrss.org/TeCudM).
Much appreciation to Allison Martyn, who presented this idea to TSG. She has shown how one person can set a great example through compassion and collaboration.

AZCIV China Town Hall Update
Host: AZCIV and TSG (Nikhil Kaul and Nicole Johnson)
A group of 13 T-Birds attended the China Town Hall that was organized by Arizona Council for International Visitors in Scottsdale. The town hall opened with a webcast from Beijing featuring Gary Locke, U.S. ambassador to China. National Committee president Steve Orlins moderated the 45-minute portion of the program, after which Ambassador Locke responded to questions emailed in from audience members throughout the country.  T-Birds were certainly the most inquisitive among the 100 attendees and their questions covered topics such as the hegemonic nature of China and the transition of power in the Chinese Government.
Watch out for more of such events that build on our GPE and RBE acumen and provide beneficial networking opportunities.
