Editor’s Note We are pleased to devote this issue to EXCHANGE to the events of October 28, 1988 – one of the most significant days in School of Management history. This issue contains edited transcripts of the Marriott School announcement ceremony; a presentation by J.W. Marriott, Jr., to the National Advisory Council; and the International Executive of the Year dinner honoring J. Willard Marriott, Sr. You will also find an article specially prepared by Dean Thompson, in which he discusses the Marriott School’s plans and priorities, and an article on balancing family life and career by Butch Cash, a School of Management graduate who is an executive vice-president of Marriott Corporation and president of the Marriott Services Group. It is appropriate, at this time of change in the school, to announce some significant changes in this publication. EXCHANGE has traditionally addressed a particular theme in each issue. Recently we have discussed retailing, ethics, international business, information systems, and entrepreneurship. We will continue to give each issue a theme, but we will devote fewer pages to that theme. This will enable us to appeal to a broader range of interests in each issue. We will also include more material from students by printing the top pages from an EXCHANGE-sponsored student article contest. Another area that deserves attention is material about and from alumni and friends of the school. Although we don’t want EXCHANGE to become an alumni newsletter, we welcome profiles of School of Management alumni and articles written by our readers that would be suitable for publishing in EXCHANGE. If, therefore, you have a good idea for an article – whether it be an alumni profiles or an article on some facet of management – please send a one-page, double-spaced summary of your idea. If it looks interesting and fits the type of material we publish, I will ask you to submit a complete manuscript. We are very interested in articles from readers. And, as always, we welcome any correspondence, even if it is merely to correct our spelling of “Tianguis.” I’m still at 687 TNRB, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah 84602. Roger K. Terry Editor
