Webinar: BOOMERangs - Engaging the Aging Workforce in America

Wednesday, March 22, 2017 -

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association.

Cash Nickerson will focus on career management.

We are living longer, much longer, than our ancestors. We are no longer young and old; there is a new third age, a potentially productive age of 65-80. As our country’s nearly 80 million 
 
Baby Boomers reach this unprecedented phase of life, many want to continue in the workforce and we need them. Our attitudes, laws and workplaces need to change for us and them to adapt successfully to the age of longevity. 
 
Working and retirement should not and cannot be an “on and off switch.” Cash will help you become more aware of this information so you can use it to influence your community, employer and government organizations.

Joseph Scapellato fiction reading

Joseph Scapellato fiction reading

Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 7:00 pm

Joseph Scapellato will give a public reading from his book of short stories "Big Lonesome." Reinventing a great American tradition through an absurdist, discerning eye, Scapellato uses these stories to conjure worlds, themes and characters who are at once unquestionably familiar and undeniably strange. "Big Lonesome" navigates through the American West—from the Old West to the modern-day West to the Midwest, from cowboys to mythical creatures to everything in between—exploring place, myth, masculinity and what it means to be whole or to be broken.
