Mark Chester's Twosomes Photography Exhibit @ Wellesley Free Library
Mark Chester's Twosomes touring exhibit and companion book from Un-Gyve Press represents images culled from his forty years of traveling with a camera, presented in pairings related by subject matter, graphic interest or, as the photographer puts it, a stretch of the imagination. a wide-reaching body-of-work that connects architectural icons with sidewalk signage; Japan with Iowa; 1979 with 2002; celebrity with passerby in a manner that reveals, as novelist Paul Theroux describes, tremendous humanity and humor....In this juxtaposition of matching moods and paraphernalia, Mark Chester shows us in an ingenious way how the world is related and how we matter to each other.

Timothy Colton: The United States and Russia: A New Cold War?

The current crisis over Ukraine has utterly obliterated the reset policy towards Russia that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama launched five years ago, and the world is witnessing a sea-change in U.S.-Russian relations. With President Obama issuing ever-harsher condemnations of his Russian counterpart, and Mr. Putin accusing the United States of having fomented revolution in Ukraine in order to remove Ukraine from the Russian sphere of influence, are we now being hurtled into a new Cold War? Harvard Professor Timothy Colton will address this key question in a lecture on U.S.-Russian relations in this time of crisis and beyond.

Meet the Expert Series...Gen X/Gen Y: Challenges & Opportunities for Financial Planners

Meet The Expert, 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm, Seminar

Networking & Cocktail Reception, Immediately Following

Thursday, March 26, 2015

Speaker:Elvin Turner JD, M.B.A. -Managing Director, Turner Consulting LLC

Topic: "Gen X/Gen Y: Challenges & Opportunities for Financial Planners"

Boomers get a lot of attention from advisors. Generation X (which I define as ages 35 to 50) and Generation Y (adults age 34 and under) get less attention but present great opportunities for advisors who manage these relationships well. I will focus on the challenges and opportunities presented by affluent and wealthy individuals in these age groups. During the session you will hear about student loan debt and delayed marriages. In a strange way, student loan debt may impact new business formulation for these individuals. Robust incomes will sometimes be combined with relatively modest savings. The typical milestones that trigger life insurance and estate planning discussions may come at odd times. But these generations do watch their elders and are convinced that they need to seriously plan for the future. This session will leave you thinking about opportunities. Hopefully you will also think about people with whom you need to talk and topics that you should raise with them.
