Big Ten Club Happy Hour

The Happy Hour at Rush Street was a resounding success with capacity attendance on the deck of the bar and grill.  The networking power of the Big Ten Club was in full force as the guests enjoyed a beautiful LA night sky.  Appetizers were devoured, prizes were won and stories were shared in what was a great start to the conference football weekend.  We appreciate everyone who came out and hope to see you all again at our upcoming events.

Big Ten Club Contact Cards - Now Available

Big Ten Club Members -- We printed brand new Club business cards for our members to have and pass out to interested parties and prospective members.  We also established a permanent BTC mailing address and phone number for contacts.  Besides welcoming our newest Nebraska members, these cards are excellent for chance meetings and to get people interested in the Big Ten Club.  Send an email with your mailing address to secretary@bigtenclub.com and we'll send you some....help us spread the good word about the Big Ten Club!!!!




Big Ten Club Website – Help Wanted

Our Webmaster Steven Green will be President next year, and he'll have plenty to do for the Club.  We are thinking of redoing the website and asking for a volunteer who can add content regularly and keep it updated.  This is a very important part of our updated Communication plan, and help here would be very useful and greatly appreciated.  The ideal person would have web design experience, a little graphic art knowledge and 3-4 hours a month available to help the Club.  Please contact Alan Freeman, Communications Committee Chair at afreeman@bestOCevents.com or cell (714) 390-5190 if you would like to help in this important position.
