BRIEFLY Rick Bookstaber: Fulbright Winner Richard Bookstaber, a BYU professor who is of Jewish heritage, will teach at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel this fall on a Fulbright award. Bookstaber, an associate professor of economics and finance in the Institute of Business Management, was raised in the Jewish faith until he joined the Mormon church. He is one of nine American scholars chosen to go to the Israeli university. Bookstaber will teach two graduate courses, supervise master’s degree theses, and participate in research projects in international finance. The Fulbright award encourages mutual understanding between nations through an international exchange of scholars. Thanks for Your Ongoing Support Dean Dyer expresses his continuing appreciation to all of you who are providing ongoing funding support for the School of Management. Could we ask just one other favor? As you send in your donations, please send them directly to our office, and identify where the money is to be used. We have several separate funds including a General School of Management fund, the Tanner Building fund, the Management Society fund, and specific funds for the various academic programs in the college (Public Management, Organizational Behavior, Business Management, Accounting, Business Education and Administrative Management, MBA, etc.) We want to put the dollars to work where you want them to be used. Please let us know. And again, our sincere thanks. International Executive of the Year We are pleased to announce that the recipient of the 1981 international Executive of the Year Award will be Reginald H. Jones, recently retired Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the General Electric Company. This award will be presented at a dinner honoring Mr. Jones in conjunction with the National Advisory Council meetings in November. We are delighted that Mr. Jones has accepted this award and that he will attend our NAC meetings. Further details on this award and the recipient’s remarks will be reported in the next issue of EXCHANGE: Update. Management Society: A New Look Exciting changes are taking place in the Management Society. First, all alumni and friends of the School of Management are now considered members of the society. There are no dues, yet lots of benefits are offered, including affiliation with local chapters which organizes luncheons and social gatherings. Members will be able to participate in continuing education programs. All will receive regular communications from the School of Management, and all members will be invited to attend annual seminars at the BYU campus. Second, the new Management Society will be designed to enhance the careers of its members. Placement and relocation assistance will be provided. Local members will be alerted to the arrival of new graduates, and information and service will be available. Local chapters will seek internship opportunities for students, thereby helping future alumni and the companies that will eventually employ them. Obviously, the thrust of the new Management Society is service-service to BYU’s alumni, students, and School of Management. BYU’s Prestigious Maeser Award Goes to GSM’s H. Keith Hunt Eight BYU faculty members received Karl G. Maeser awards September 1, 1981, recognizing their outstanding teaching, research, or creative accomplishments. Among the recipients was Dr. H.
