Learning to Give

It's not necessarily an easy thing to do to give - to be selfless and to share your time, talent or treasure with an organization or individual.
 
In this LCCC Spotlight, meet Billie Addleman and Brandi Monger, a married lawyer couple that learned to give through the college.

The Ed and Caren Murray Art Series presents: Another Place, The Paintings of Kit White

  • Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014 at Laramie County Community College
  • 7 p.m. – Artist Lecture with Kit White, Science Center Room 121

  • www.lcccfoundation.edu

The artwork will be on display from Oct. 22 – Nov. 20, 2014

About the Artwork
Another Place, The Paintings of Kit White, looks at an alternative approach to landscape and what the idea of landscape, as a traditional form of visual description, entails. White breaks the landscape down to its metaphorical essentials: a stage or platform on which events and occupations take place. The linear elements that occupy that platform shift between being organic, constructed, or a mash up of both. As such, they represent the breadth of activities that take place in the world.

Curt Kaiser Memorial Ethics Fund presents Frank Bucaro

“Trust me! Insights to Ethical Leadership”

  • Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m.
  • LCCC - Union Pacific Centennial Room, Center for Conferences and Institutes, Room 129/130
  • Free and Open to the public

Leaders are increasingly challenged to find ways to build trust, foster collaboration, and develop customer loyalty. This upbeat, humorous and entertaining program features practical ideas and techniques to help support and energize leaders.

About Frank Bucaro
Frank Bucaro knows that trust issues, leadership missteps and ethics problems can threaten any organization, impact market value, and cause irreversible damage. His unique career path from the classroom to the boardroom began several years ago after a succession of high profile media reports on ethics problems captured his attention. While still a teacher, he became increasingly aware that problems relating to unethical practices in the marketplace seemed to be on the rise. Believing that ethics and values had the power to increase business success rather than impede it, he left teaching and began presenting on the subject of ethics.
