Happy Holidays from
Sententia Vera Cultural Hub
This season give the gift of presence! Make a list of family and friends, and reach out. Give them a call, write them a note, share your latest read with them, start a conversation. Life gets busy and chore lists get longer, practice self-care and be present with those you love.
With 2016 coming to an end, we want to wish you the happiest holidays and send our sincerest thanks for your support throughout the year. Sententia Vera looks forward to 2017 and its mission to create a safe space for a cultural community, sharing and learning from the presence of others.
2016 has been a year of harsh challenges and blatant alarms, a year of awakening for most and reawakening of others. 2017 may look even bleaker for some, if not most. Sententia Vera Hub is grateful for its will and spirit, and its energy and perseverance, as it works to create a safe space for its community to transform, recompose, and strengthen its mission to foster healthy communication and engagement between languages and cultures, creating an active dialogue that values and respects the diversity in the other.
Sententia Vera is grateful for multiculturalism as a free and active participant in the global community and the inclusion of all its members. Most importantly, it is grateful that you are a part of this community! Thank you!
Capital City A&M Club | The Austin Ags
Reveille Group Distinguished Speaker Series
Last Friday, October 21, I attended the Austin Ags’ Reveille Distinguished Speaker Series luncheon. Hosted at The Headliners Club with its remarkable skyline view of downtown Austin, CCAMC President, David Perez ‘02, welcomed the day’s distinguished speaker, Grant Birdwell ’00. The Distinguished Speaker Series “invites business and civic leaders to engage with [the CCAMC] membership on professional topics. Speakers draw upon their experiential knowledge as they engage in relevant, inspirational, and informative discussions.” Grant Birdwell was no exception, his talk on Unorthodox Strategic Partnerships was timely, motivating one’s ideas on collaborative efforts to expand the thought and creation of nontraditional partnerships.
