On Tuesday Nov 8th we will have Clark Binkley visiting the college, and he will give a presentation on “Institutional Investment in Timberland: Past, Present and Future”. The talk will be at 3:00pm in the afternoon in Richardson Hall 107.
Clark will talk about what “institutional investment” is, why institutions invest in timberland, a brief history of institutional investment and the TIMOs who support it, and finally what the future looks like, both from the perspective of those working in it and what it means for the forest landscape in the US. Clark was Dean of the Faculty of Forestry at the University of British Columbia for 8 years, Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer of the Hancock Timber Resource Group, and is now Chief Investment Officer and Managing Director of GreenWood Resources, Inc.
A reception follows.
Now’s the time to start thinking about visiting your advisor for winter term planning. Many advisors have already sent out emails to ONID accounts explaining how to go about scheduling an advising appointment. So, be sure to read your ONID email! If you haven’t yet heard from your advisor send a message or stop by his or her office. You’ll need to set up an advising appointment and the sooner the better! If you don’t know when you’re eligible for Phase 1 registration, check Online Student Services. Your first eligable registration date is listed in the “Registration” section. If you’re a FOM, FE, or FE/CE student and don’t remember who your advisor is, visit the FERM Department Office in Peavy 204.
