Message from Chartwell’s
Due to recent complaints from the surrounding community the Pub will be introducing some new policies. Beginning Thursday November 29th 2012 during busy nights at the Pub (typically Thursday Nights, Regional Nights Etc.) the Pub will have additional staff at the front door. This Staff member will be insuring that Thunderbird maintains compliance with the City’s Fire Code, Noise Levels and Liquor Laws.  In addition, there will no longer be any live entertainment at the Pub until further notice.
Please assist the school with maintaining these very important regulations by remembering that:
– No outside beverages to enter the Pub,

GBSN MBA Challenge
Can an MBA change the world? The annual Global Business School Network video contest isn’t for several months, but students can start planning now on their submission. The contest allows MBA students to show how they’re applying their business school education to make a difference in the developing world.
In 2011, a group of Tbirds had won first place and were able to attend the GBSN conference in Mexico City! Here is a link to see this past year’s videos: http://www.gbsnonline.org/?page=videos_mbachallenge
