Message from the President


Friends and colleagues,

As we head into the Fall season, we are pleased to share news of successful programming and exciting opportunities ahead. The summer wrapped up with a September tour of Phipps' Center for Sustainable Landscapes and WELL building discussion featuring expert panelists from Phipps Conservatory, International WELL Building Institute, Building Forte Science and RWDI Consulting Engineers. This unique behind-the-scenes opportunity was followed by an outdoor reception at The Porch at Schenley. In just two weeks, we will kick off our Fall programming with the 1st Annual CoreNet Pittsburgh Ping Pong Tournament at the Ace Hotel. All skill levels are welcome for this signature event supporting breast cancer research at Magee-Women's Research Institute through A Glimmer of Hope Foundation. Interested in team building opportunities? Wish to support this cause as a corporate partner? Please call: (724) 687-0707 for more information. Thank you to Event Sponsor: IST Management Services. Please see Upcoming Events below for registration details and news of other exciting Fall Programs.
