IT and Entrepreneurship Forum Postponed to October 18
Late last week, Howard Deutsch '69 sent the following message to members of the RCNJ Leadership Committee:
"A decision has been made to postpone the Rensselaer NJ/NY Technology Forum. The new date for the forum is October 18. This change in date has been made to provide more time to line up sponsors. Our goal is to have two sponsors providing $5,000 each. We have until June 30 to line up the sponsors."

Howard Deutsch continued:
First, I want to thank all of you for your help in planning the Forum and in any efforts you have taken to line up sponsors! As many of you said, the timing was ambitious and we are now in a much better position to plan the event to ensure success. The members of the planning committee in Troy believe they will be able to reallocate the funding they have secured for the Forum to next year's budget.
Please continue your efforts to line up sponsors.
Holding a half day seminar and reception at the Marriott Newark Airport is a very expensive proposition. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has very generously offered to provide substantial funding to this meeting, but should not be expected to cover the entire cost.
The RCNJ Leadership Committee also wants to make this important program affordable to RPI students and young alumni who would benefit most from exposure to this program. As such, the need for corporate sponsorship is obvious.
If you want to help make this event a reality, please contact Howard Deutsch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
