Homecoming 2018

Retirement Reception with Mary Brabston and Asper Alumni

James W. Burns Executive Education Centre, 2nd Floor, 177 Lombard Avenue

Fall signals Homecoming festivities at the U of M and we have one of our treasured Asper ambassadors to celebrate this year!

Asper alumni are invited to join us for a retirement reception with Mary Brabston to honour her more than 20 years of service to students at the Asper School.

This important milestone is a wonderful opportunity to re-connect with alumni and share stories of Mary’s engagement with students during your time at Asper and beyond.

Mary was faculty advisor to the Co-operative Education Program, the Commerce Students’ Association, Beta Gamma Sigma (the international business scholastic honour society), the JDC West business competition team, and the Management Information Students Association (MISA). Mary was associate professor of management information systems in the Department of Accounting and Finance at the University of Manitoba when she retired in 2018.

This will be a come-and-go style reception with hors d’oeuvres and refreshments.

*Alumni are encouraged to send photos, memories or quotes about Mary to Courtney Thompson at in advance; these will be compiled and displayed in a presentation throughout the event.

We are looking forward to sharing more stories with you, as well as hearing your own. We have a great deal to celebrate together!

Please include any dietary restrictions or mobility requirements in your RSVP to Courtney Thompson by September 20.
