Lunch Highlights CURI and Local Military Community

Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, the director of business development for the Clemson University Restoration Institute (CURI), provided a briefing on the various programs and initiatives of CURI during the July luncheon. Colbert-Busch is responsible for CURI’s private public strategic planning for business and economic development. CURI projects and programs include: the Department of Energy grant to build a state of the art wind turbine testing facility and a one of a kind 15MW Hardware-in-the-Loop Grid Simulator; the South Carolina Electric and Gas Energy Innovation Center; Duke Energy’s Electric Grid Innovation and Development Center; and The Zucker Family Graduate Education Center. The briefing was well received by chapter members and guests, including six members of the local military community who joined as sponsored guests through the chapter's "Lunch with a Warrior" program. For chapter luncheons, chapter corporate members are given the opportunity to sponsor a table of local active duty service members with which to dine and socialize as well as to introduce them to the chapter. The July sponsor was Motorola, and warriors from various units based at Joint Base Charleston were in attendance.
