Enjoy a breakfast buffet and a compelling speaker (from one of our community’s outstanding colleges and universities) on an important topic—and still get to work by 8 a.m.! Your brain (and stomach) will thank you, and you can impress your friends and co-workers with your clearer understanding of this complex world!

Not a member of the University Club? Not a problem. Simply register here so that they will expect you, and when you arrive tell them that you are a guest of Ken Erffmeyer. You will be all set!
